Abstract

BUSCAGLIA, SILVANA. The representation of interethnic relationships in Antonio Viedma ‘s discourse (Southern Patagonia, 18th Century). Magallania [online]. 2011, vol.39, n.2, pp. 15-35. ISSN 0718-2244.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22442011000200002.

The aim of this paper is to analyze the interethnic relationship construction at the spanish colony of Floridablanca (San Julián, Santa Cruz province, 18th century). our analytic perspective integrates the discourses and daily practices from information provided by historical sources. In particular, we evaluate the representation of local tehuelches (aonikenk) in Antonio Viedma´s discourse, considering the implications of contact and indigenous practices for the implementation of the ideal society which sought to promote in the colony.

Keywords : Patagonia; 18th century; daily life; discourses and social practices.
