PAEZ, María Cecilia  y  GIOVANNETTI, Marco. Tipologizando Identidades: reflexiones sobre la construcción de identidades étnicas en la Arqueología del NOA. Avá [online]. 2008, n.13, pp.1-1. ISSN 1851-1694.

It is possible to summarize the interpretations about the prehispanic past that were built over the latest half of the twentieth century -which helped as a foundation for the following scientific development-, as a strong connection between the ethnic identity and the material culture. Ethnicity is manifested through an aggregate of material items that were left behind by a highly homogeneous social unity, to which these characteristics functioned as distinctions. However, the analysis -in this case, a stylistic analysis-of the pottery records for the late and Inka epochs, account for a significantly more complex process, in which the identitary practice is manifested as a fluent, contingent and dynamic process. The combination and recombination in a same fragment of design elements that were traditionally related to defined stylistic manifestations (Belén, Santa María, Famabalasto), seems to be more of a rule rather than an exception in the late epoch representations. Hence, it is proposed a revaluation regarding the construction of identities, taking as a leading axis the structural role of the social practices.

Palabras clave : Ethnic identity; Prehispanic pottery styles; Social practices.
