ZAPATA SILVA, Claudia. MEMORY AND HISTORY: THE SEARCH FOR A COLLECTIVE IDENTITY AMONG THE AYMARA IN CHILE. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2007, vol.39, n.2, pp.171-183. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562007000200002.

The emergence of an Aymara identity among the indigenous population in the northernpart o/Chile is a recent phenomenon, as some researchers have shown in the last few years. This paper discusses the difficult link between identity and memory as apart of a new phenomenon, where the concerned individuals, mainly urban Aymara, feel the necessity of articulating a memory that would represent this broad collective group, the Aymara people. At the same time, they assume the challenge to build this memory, or, in their own words, to "know" and "discover" it. The analysis focuses on the tensions that exist in this effort and on the way in which these tensions appear in the writings of different ethnic organizations since the nineties. Our interest centers on what the subjects say about Aymara memory (the level of metamemory), as well as on the efforts they put on its construction, and the resources they use

Palabras clave : Memory; history; ethnic identity.
