PIMENTEL, GONZALO E e MONTT S, INDIRA. TARAPACA IN ATACAMA: ROCK ART AND INTERSOCIETAi RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN AD 900 AND 1450. Bol. Mus. Chil. Arte Precolomb. [online]. 2008, vol.13, n.1, pp. 35-50. ISSN 0718-6894. doi: 10.4067/S0718-68942008000100003.
This paper explores the Tarapacan presence in Atacama during the Late Intermediate Period, relying on systematized evidence from cemeteries and settlements, and a registry of anthropomorphic rock art figures depicted with the culture's characteristic trapezoidal apparel. In the framework of the social theory, the authors discuss the types of occupation that Tarapacá had in Atacama, and the nature of the group's intersocietal relationships in the Loa River area.
