Abstract

GONZALEZ MIRANDA, Sergio. THE INDIGENOUS PRESENCE IN THE NITRATE ENCLAVE OF TARAPACÁ: A REFLECTION ON THE RELIGIOUS CELEBRATION OF LA TIRANA. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2006, vol.38, n.1, pp.35-49. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562006000100005.

This work analyzes the indigenous presence in the nitrate places of Tarapacá and suggests that the religious feast of La Tirana was re-founded during the period of the nitrate. There are scarce studies about the relation between the Andean world and the nitrate world, whose mutual influence has been hidden in the shadow of the labor movement and organization, on one side, and the Aymara community, on the other. Nevertheless, popular rituals and festivities, such as La Tirana, evince the indigenous influence in the nitrate enclave and, also the impact of this in the Andean culture

Keywords : Nitrate; Andean cosmovision; ritual; labor movement; indigenous or native community.
