Abstract

CASALI, ROMINA. INTERETHNICAL CONTACTS IN THE NORTH OF TIERRA DEL FUEGO: FIRST APPROACH TO THE SELK'NAM RESISTANCE STRATEGY. Magallania [online]. 2008, vol.36, n.2, pp.45-61. ISSN 0718-2244.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22442008000200003.

This paper presents a discussion about the possibilities and / or capabilities to develop a strategy of resistance to colonisation by the Selk'nam, towards the end of the nineteenth century. We analyzed primary sources (consulted on file with the Museo del Fin del Mundo, Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego) ethnographic, historical and etnohistorical, to propose a first approach to the problem. It suggests a pattern of resistance considering variables concerning both the power devices, as well as the agency of the conquered. It also examines the determinism of the forms of colonization to the potential responses of Aborigines.

Keywords : Interethnic contact; Selk'nam; resistance; power devices.
