TOZZINI, Alma. Hilvanando opuestos: lecturas identitarias a partir de la conformación de una comunidad mapuche en Lago Puelo, Provincia de Chubut. Avá [online]. 2007, n.10, pp. 47-65. ISSN 1851-1694.
The supported increase in real - estate business in Patagonia since the decade of 1990, has a strong impact in Lake Puelo on the claims to possession of the land of descendants of former settlers came to the region at the end of the nineteenth century. The following article proposes to analyse from a turnerian perspective, and starting from the recent conformation of a Mapuche Community in the area, how the struggles for possession of the land, the ethnic - national identity of the involved actors and the role played by the provincial and local State through its territorial politics are related to one another. To analyse these events in key of "social dramas" will allow us not only to understand the different stages that had been occurring in this centenarian struggle but also will provide us with a frame from which rethink, starting from the analysis of this small area, the "official" story of the identities of the people of the (Andes) mountain chain.
