BALLESTEO, Benjamin; LABARCA, Rafael  and  CALAS, Elisa. Relations between humans and sea turtles in the coast of Atacama: Two archaeological examples. Bol. Mus. Chil. Arte Precolomb. [online]. 2018, vol.23, n.2, pp.143-162. ISSN 0718-6894.

The archaeology from the Atacama Desert littoral had centered their studies into a reduced animal spectrum, over representing those more traditional, known, and popular, as fishes, camelids and otarides, in detriment of others, with a less bounded but equally significant register. We present a reflection about humans and sea turtles relationships, practically absents from the besti ary of the northern Chile littoral populations, focusing in their interespecies relations, highlighting the diversity of strategies, instances, and mechanism through which this those relations where constructed and acted.

Keywords : Chelonioidea; marine hunting; interspecies relationship; northern chilean coast.
