GUERRERO JIMENEZ, Bernardo. Military bands: Youth and nationalism in iquique. Ultima décad. [online]. 2010, vol.18, n.32, pp.121-136. ISSN 0718-2236.

War bands composed of high school students from the city of Iquique are examined. They are evidence of how Chilean identity -through a process of Chileanization- shapes up into youngsters’ subjectivity loyalty towards the nation. Furthermore, it is a space where masculinity is built according to the protocol of national identity. Even though there are bands made up of women, those formed by men continue to be the most important regarding prestige and symbolic representation of Chilean citizenship in Northern Chile.

Keywords : youth; war bands; masculinity; nacional identity.
