MANSILLA TORRES, Sergio. Dilemmas of cultural identity in a Chiloe faced with the Chilean neoliberal model. Alpha [online]. 2006, n.23, pp. 9-36. ISSN 0718-2201. doi: 10.4067/S0718-22012006000200002.
The archipelago of Chiloe, in the last 30 years -due to the massive increase of fishing industry and the introduction of a growing market economy on the islands- has suffered important cultural transformations. These changes have challenged the continuity of Chiloe's traditional culture, which comes from the colonial period. This paper presents some of the present dilemmas and transformations of the archipelago's cultural identity and discusses its cultural implications.
