Abstract

URBINA, M. XIMENA. THE FRUSTRATED STRATEGIC MISSION OF NAHUELHUAPI, A POINT IN PATAGONIA´S´ IMMENSITY. Magallania [online]. 2008, vol.36, n.1, pp.5-30. ISSN 0718-2244.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22442008000100001.

In the oriental slope of the Andes, in the margins of the Nahuelhuapi Lake, the Jesuits of the Colegio de Castro of Chiloe, unsuccessfully tried during the XVII and XVIII centuries to maintain a native mission and settlement with not only the objective to convert puelches and poyas, but also to establish there a point of access or an operational base to missional and exploratory journeys between the Patagonia and the Strait of Magellan. The devotion of the evangelist appeared in this endeavor, but also the strategic interests towards these lands beyond the Andes, from the authorities from the Chiloe province and the central kingdom of Chile.

Keywords : Nahuelhuapi; Patagonia; mission.
