Resumen

MENARD, André. ETNOHISTORY, THE SUPPLEMENT AND THE SUPERSTITION. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2015, n.46, pp.71-77. ISSN 0719-2681.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812015000100006.

From a discussion on the "supplementary" character of the ethnohistorical discipline- in the sense that it is supposed to fill a historical lack in ethnographic knowledge or an ethographic lack in historical knowledge- I propose a review of the general problem of the relationship between events or historicity in one hand, and the culturalist emphasis on the synchronic and holistic approach to culture, in the other. Then I comment the current anthropological postulates of a cannibal ontology but reformulating them in order to understand this supposed cultural cannibalism as the manifestation of "other" forms of archive and register. Within this framework, I rescue Tylor's notion of "survival" and its link to the magically connoted notion of "superstition". Thus, the paper proposes a perspective for reading current conflicts regarding indigenous rights and demands as conflicts between ethnic, administrative, museological or scientific actors for controlling certain spaces or objects that can be understood as a sort of "superstitions". And far from being mere objects, those "superstitions" seem to have an agency capability according to the auratic power emanating from their "authenticity."

Palabras clave : Indigenous archives; cannibalism; survival; heritage.
