FROM TRAILS TO LANDSCAPES: LANDSCAPES OF THE MOBILITIES OF A MAPUCHE COMMUNITY IN THE SOUTHERN ANDES OF CHILE
DE SENDEROS A PAISAJES: PAISAJES DE LAS MOVILIDADES DE UNA COMUNIDAD MAPUCHE EN LOS ANDES DEL SUR DE CHILE
This article examines the landscapes of the mobilities of a Mapuche community located in the Andean commune of Curarrehue, recognized by the multiple networks of Mapuche exchange and cross-border commercial traffic in the southern Andes of Chile. The research methodology is qualitative with an ethnographic and narrative approach. Based on the results of the research, three landscapes associated with specific routes and mobilities of the community were distinguished: the Mongolluko landscape, the Añihuerraqui landscape and the Trankura landscape. It is concluded that the landscapes of the Mapuche mobilities are reproduced through narratives of past and present mobilities with regard to specific sites and routes, whose practices and discourses challenge and subvert the effects of State agency on the Andes mountains.
