Resumen

BRITO A, EUGENIA. Three heroes in the Kawesqar muthycal world. Magallania [online]. 2012, vol.40, n.1, pp.93-107. ISSN 0718-2244.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22442012000100005.

In this article my aim is to study the specificity of the role of the hero in two Kawésqar stories: the Tale of Annapas and the Tale of the mouse. From the reading and analysis of oral texts of this ethnic group from southern Chile, I hold that heroism, similarly linked to male character has a unique and differentiated existence, which manifests itself in the first case, through a rhetoric of actions linked to the confrontation and power and, in the second example, neglect and overcoming adversity, thanks to privileged gifts for resistance and sacrifice, which leads to the reformulation of social pacts. The hero, thus, becomes a metaphor of being male Kawésqar, obtaining therefore community prestige.

Palabras clave : Fueguian languages; Kawesqar; Kawesqar oral literature; Kawesqar myths; Kawesqar stories; narrative.
