Visions and practices for recognition of and for indigenous people in the province of La Pampa

In La Pampa state, the saying La Pampa is an orderly province helps to describe the people’s identity.

As the growing demands of the province’s indigenous people became evident, I set about researching the role that “order” played in La Pampa’s people. At first, I assumed that the well-spread idea of an orderly province would take care of the indigenous communities’ demands

After passing through different events and meeting with pro-indigenous and anti-indigenous groups about issues related to indigenous recognition in La Pampa, I identified three areas during my years of study that I believe contained disputes and agreements on what, how and why to vindicate the indigenous in La Pampa. Is that they were arguments, that when structured, became structural for the configuration of the indigenous in the province. I refer to the following issues: In La Pampa there are (almost) no Native Indians, the “permitted” Pampean Indian is Ranquel and a promotor of cultural expressions and indigenous questions are (only) indigenous.
