Patagonia is a region of irregular limits, a fact that signified an inventory of images framed by the various instances of attempted exploration, and that create the conditions for a differentiated cultural space. Therefore, discussing the concept of identity involves a problem even more complex: what is understood by identity in the South?; what subjects are part of this identification project?; and, under what pressures were their bases established? To rebuild the process of identity construction, it is accurate to turn to the texts that from the time of the conquest project a particular image of the geographical area and those who live there. This paper will retain forms of colonial discourse, a reading of the topics concerning the Magellan-Patagonian identity, and moments of intertextual tension that as of the sixteenth century creates a way to position the south.
