MONTECINO AGUIRRE, Sonia  and  FOERSTER GONZALEZ, Rolf. Identidades en tensión: devenir de una etno y gastropolítica en Isla de Pascua. Universum [online]. 2012, vol.27, n.1, pp.143-166. ISSN 0718-2376.

This article discusses the future of rapanui ethnopolitics, playing one of their lesser-known facets, the food and cooking as a system of symbols, techniques and products that operate in the negotiation of identities and in the confrontation of colonial order. A historical-anthropological analysis shows that gastropolitics operate on Easter Island as a place where politics, culture and reproduction are tied on the ongoing creation and recreation of space in which the community expresses and pacts their relationships within and inter-etics.

Keywords : Cooking; politics; identities.
