Abstract

CHACAMA RODRIGUEZ, Juan. THE CARANGA AND THE SYMBOLIC MANAGEMENT OF THE WESTERN ANDEAN WATERSHED (PRECORDILLERA OF ARICA. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2014, n.44, pp.89-103. ISSN 0719-2681.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812014000200008.

It is proposed that during the late prehistory of the precordillera of Arica or 'Altos de Arica', there were cultural, political and economic interactions between populations of the western valleys and the highland populations, specifically the Caranga. Parallel to the above forms of interaction, the ethnic Caranga have also held the mountain as a symbolic space, which today can be unders-tood through certain types of representations that have left their mark in the minds of these populations as well as in the cultural landscape. These representations make reference to the invocation of the hills and the construction of architectural structures linked to the ritual sphere, which when together allow us to approximate the Caranga ideology and therefore the symbolic management of the Andean western watershed.

Keywords : Symbolic Management; Caranga; Precordillera of Arica.
