LIVING / EXPERIENCED TERRITORIES: OPENING STEPS FOR THE SUSTAINABILITY OF COMMUNITIES AND THEIR CULTURAL-NATURAL HERITAGE IN THE ANDES

The GCRF-FF University of Exeter- Fundación Tiempos (2020-2021) project seeks to generate data systems on the ancient use of land in northwestern Argentina (agriculture, water resources, communicational / interaction) that are useful and relevant for the populations indigenous and rural locals, and seeking that these data integrate local views and values ​​about the landscape and the lived territory. The intention is that the project products serve to facilitate communication between local populations and those who carry out planning policies at various levels. It aims to contribute to the creation of bridges that cover the differences between the different perspectives, approaches and perceptions of the landscape, so that public policies are increasingly inclusive.

The project has two main areas of work: (1) remote mapping based on satellite images in an ARCGI environment, (2) enquiry with local communities to explore how to build bridges between the different ways of representing and conceiving the landscape. Through activities and consultations, we seek to understand if these questions matter or not, or if there are others that we have not considered and can be added. We also hope to develop results / publications / reports that integrate the diverse perspectives and that serve as a communication link and support for the autonomous development of the communities.

LIGIAAT: CONSTRUCTION MONITORING IN THE FRAMEWORK OF A PROCREAR BUILDING ON THE AREA OCCUPIED BY THE MAYORALTY OF “PRESIDENCIA ROQUE SÁENZ PEÑA” CITY

In 2014, the Interdisciplinary Group of Archeology and Anthropology Investigations Laboratory of Tucumán (LIGIAAT) was summoned by the Federal Court of Presidencia Roque Sáenz Peña (Chaco) to carry out expert tasks on the property where the ex-Mayoralty operated, denounced as a clandestine center of detention. On that occasion, they conducted interviews and excavations on the property, preparing a detailed report on what had been done and raising the need to monitor the work during sediment movements on the ground in order to provide data on the use of the building as well as the possibility of finding clandestine burials.

THE “ESTANCIERA EXPERIENCE” PROJECT IS LAUNCHED

Dear partners and friends of the Fundación Tiempos:

We are proud to tell you that at the end of 2018 we have acquired a 1957 Estanciera model, with original Continental engine and original Willys 4 × 4 (it is one of 17 that were made like this!).

Perhaps because it is the first rural manufactured in the country, this collector’s item fills us with nostalgia every time we hear its engine roar and we see it roll smoothly over any terrain.

With it we want to carry out a tourist-cultural project, which we have called Estanciera Experience.

The Estanciera Experience will offer us the exclusivity of living a novel trip in a vehicle from another era. To this possibility of traveling through time in a vehicle with unique characteristics, we want to add the experience of discovering or re-discovering places of scenic and cultural interest in our province.

However, to start the project we need the collaboration of those who can and want to help us. We have invested all our genuine funds in buying the Estanciera and we do not have enough funds to prepare it according to the road safety requirements demanded by both the Province and the insurers, so that the trips with curious visitors become a reality. We do not want this small part of the heritage to be left standing in the garage of the friendly neighbor who takes care of it. She needs to go out and walk the streets of Tucumán.

For this reason, and to raise the necessary funds, we are distributing stickers about the project. We look forward to your cooperation. Thus, soon we will be able to enjoy this beautiful Estanciera Experience.

Thanks since now!

ANCESTRAL TERRITORIES. ARCHEOLOGY OF THE FIRST SETTLEMENTS IN NORTHWESTERN ARGENTINA

Ancestral Territories is a web page dedicated to the history of the local populations of the current Argentine Northwest, more precisely those that some 2000 years ago constituted with their knowledge and practices part of what would be the indigenous identity of the region. The content results from archaeological investigations that have been generated within the academic world, encouraged and supported by the State, both in universities and scientific institutions such as CONICET, as well as with the support of international cooperation institutions and organizations.

It is part of an innovative initiative, which involved various stages and forms of consultation, dialogue and feedback. Initially, a professional workshop to present and discuss the most recent research advances on the first settlements of the Argentine Northwest (Tafí del Valle, Tucumán, year 2012). From that meeting, arose the Editorial Committee that would publish the academic book on archeology ( http://www.saantropologia.com.ar/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/CRONICAS-MATERIALES-PRECOLOMBINAS2015.pdf ). In a subsequent stage, organized as the Con/Textos Editorial Team, we consulted with experts in scientific dissemination and with representatives of some rural and indigenous communities in the Northwest in order to develop two products: a book not yet published and its corresponding website (http://www.saantropologia.com.ar/territorios-ancestrales/ ). Both synthesize and adapt the contents of the academic book, maintaining scientific rigor, but communicating the contents with a non-academic language, which provides clarity of presentation to facilitate its use as reference material for the general public. In this way, we were incorporating diverse opinions and considering a wide variety of educational and communicational needs and contexts.

RESCUING A FORGOTTEN HERITAGE. CONSERVATION, RESEARCH, ENHANCEMENT AND DISSEMINATION OF TEXTILE ARCHAEOLOGICAL HERITAGE. THE COLLECTION OF ETHNOGRAPHIC TEXTILES OF THE INSTITUTE OF ARCHEOLOGY AND MUSEUM (IAM), FACULTY OF NATURAL SCIENCES, NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF TUCUMÁN, ARGENTINE REPUBLIC

IDB PROJECT (2013): RESCUING A FORGOTTEN HERITAGE. CONSERVATION, RESEARCH, ENHANCEMENT AND DISSEMINATION OF TEXTILE ARCHAEOLOGICAL HERITAGE. THE COLLECTION OF ETHNOGRAPHIC TEXTILES OF THE INSTITUTE OF ARCHEOLOGY AND MUSEUM, FACULTY OF NATURAL SCIENCES, NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF TUCUMÁN, ARGENTINE REPUBLIC RESPONSIBLE: SARA MARÍA LUISA LÓPEZ CAMPENY.

Rescuing a forgotten heritage. Conservation, research, enhancement and dissemination of Textile Archaeological Heritage. The collection of ethnographic textiles of the Institute of Archeology and Museum, Faculty of Natural Sciences, National University of Tucumán, Argentine Republic.

Title of the original project awarded : Rescuing a forgotten heritage. Conservation, research, enhancement and dissemination of Textile Archaeological Heritage. The collection of torteros of the Provincial Museum of Santiago del Estero, Argentine Republic.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION AND OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT:

The purpose of the project is to carry out a set of actions aimed at  conservation  and  enhancement of a museum collection -relevant in terms of its heritage and documentary value- that is made up of a variety of ethnographic textile materials (more than 300 pieces), from different traditional communities in South America (Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina). This collection was formed during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, as a result of the common practices of anthropology of the time, standing out among the main author of this collection the renowned anthropologist Alfred Métraux, who was the creator in 1928 and first director of the Institution that today houses the pieces. Through the implementation of these tasks, technical training of the Museum staff is carried out -in a dynamic and participatory way- in aspects focused on preventive conservation, in their role as agents in direct contact with heritage, which will soon be extended to university students of the Archeology and Museology careers of the National University of Tucumán, through the Dictation of Technical Workshops. In addition, scientific information will be obtained  from the survey of the materials, which will allow to  disseminate  -to the local community and the general public- knowledge about ancestral practices of textile production. It is expected, in the longer term, that the database obtained will contribute to generate, support and / or strengthen actions aimed at the  assessment  and  recovery of traditional knowledge, techniques and resources that can be integrated into the existing artisan practices in the different areas, and that stimulate creative strategies that tend to  development  (cultural, economic, productive), by producing improvements in the quality of life of the communities involved and in their economic income opportunities.

RESULTS:

a) Specific results:

 General evaluation and diagnosis of the state of conservation and the storage conditions of the aforementioned textile collection, in order to establish the directives and guidelines to be followed in preventive conservation tasks.

Acquisition of supplies (silica gel, distilled water, ethanol, dust covers, latex and cotton gloves, chinstraps, tyvek, scalpels, tweezers, trays, UV filters, cleaning brushes, etc.), equipment (digital meter, manual vacuum cleaner, etc. ) and furniture («planera» type furniture, with sliding drawers), for the reconditioning and storage of textile pieces, according to current preventive conservation guidelines, of the textile sample (see details in the final budget table).

Beginning of the tasks of reconditioning and surveying the textile material and updating the information currently available on said pieces in the current database of the IAM Museum.

Design of a database to be published on the internet, with updated and revised information on reconditioned textile pieces.

b) General results:

Improvement of the prevailing storage and conservation conditions in the ethnographic textiles set and initiation of tasks related to their reorganization, inventory and systematic survey.

Technical update and training of Museum staff about criteria, guidelines, controls, conditions, materials, behavior and other important aspects linked to preventive maintenance of economic materials.

Having up-to-date information on technical aspects and on the state of conservation of the materials that are being intervened allows the Institution to have better tools to control, guard and manage its collection more effectively. At the same time, the information generated during the survey makes it possible to enhance the study possibilities of the textile collection for other researchers who wish to access it.

ARCHEOLOGY OF THE FORMATIVE PERIOD IN ARGENTINA: A MEETING TO INTEGRATE AREAS AND SUB-DISCIPLINES, REVIEW MEANINGS AND ENHANCE THE IMPACT OF ONGOING RESEARCH

National Meeting partially funded by CONICET (2012): Archeology of the Formative Period in Argentina: A meeting to integrate areas and sub-disciplines, review meanings and enhance the impact of ongoing research. Tafí del Valle, Tucumán, April 2012. Responsibles: Alejandra Korstanje and Marisa Lazzari.

ENCOUNTER: ARCHEOLOGY OF THE FORMATIVE PERIOD IN ARGENTINA (TAFÍ DEL VALLE, TUCUMÁN)

formativogrupo

On April 11, 12 and 13, the “Archeology Meeting of the Formative Period in Argentina” took place at the Vacationers Club of Tafí del Valle. Archaeologists from Tucumán, Buenos Aires, Jujuy, Salta, Chaco, Córdoba and other provinces participated, during these 3 days, exposing their research, rescues and discoveries. The works were varied, depending on the study area of ​​each Researcher, but all were framed within the historical framework of the «Formative Period».

formativoexposicion

To illustrate what exactly this period consists of, we interviewed PhD. Alejandra Korstanje (IAM-ISES), Researcher at CONICET TUCUMAN, who explained to us that: The formative period is understood to be the moment in which societies settle down sedentary in a territory based on the production of their food (agriculture and livestock) and there is an emergence of technologies that were not known before (ceramics, metallurgy, more complex textiles).

The main objectives that motivated the Meeting were essentially two:

– To start a discussion of the Formative concept, to update the knowledge that exists about this period and to make a joint synthesis book.

– Prepare updated dissemination material, since educational manuals and existing brochures reproduce very old concepts and explanations about this period.

formativaescuchando copy

During the course of the Meeting, different topics were discussed, such as the remains of domestic communities, archeology in different areas of La Rioja, Tucumán and other provinces, the way of life, practices, constructions, among others; all of them framed within the Formative Period. The event had an excellent organization, taking care of the details even in free moments. In addition to the researchers’ presentations, plenary sessions were held at the end of each day, where concepts were brought together, always in a climate of reflection, confrontation of ideas and facts, and in the spirit of dialogue and interpretation. During these debates, researchers met to discuss specific and technical issues, language, concepts, notions, etc. On the other hand, a meeting was held between the special guests to the Meeting, which was made up of the Communication team of CONICET TUCUMAN, representatives of the communities of Native Peoples of the Tafí and Mollar area, psychologists and doctors who worked in the Health system of Tafí del Valle and Rural Tourism Guides. From the dialogue between these people and non-specialized professionals in the specific area of ​​the meeting, various proposals emerged. Among them, the CONICET TUCUMAN Communication team suggested raising awareness about the work and the importance of the archaeologist’s work, so that society knows how to act in the case of finding material of historical value or a find that may be of relevance for a study to be carried out on said object or in the relevant area.

Other proposals that arose were the production of a tourist brochure with updated data and dissemination language of all the places in Tafí del Valle or near the area that have historical or archaeological importance; and the creation of a Diaguita museum, managed by the members of the native peoples, where they themselves will speak about their culture and teach the customs that remain alive to this day.

The meeting was very fruitful. A reflective discussion and dialogues were achieved that led to a consensus on the use of certain concepts and to propose guidelines on how to develop the book and the dissemination material, which will make up a concrete product of this meeting. Finally, on Saturday April 14, the organizing team offered an optional trip, where they visited different archaeological sites and places of Cultural and Natural interest in the Tafí Valley.

The meeting was organized by the Higher Institute of Social Studies (ISES) of CONICET-UNT, the University of Exeter and the Institute of Archeology and Museum (IAM) of the UNT. It also had the sponsorship of the Association of Professional Archaeologists of the Argentine Republic, the Tiempos Foundation, the Argentine Society of Anthropology and the Cultural Entity of Tucumán.

MANAGEMENT OF THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL CULTURAL RESOURCE «LA CIUDACITA» (RESEARCH, CONSERVATION AND DISSEMINATION)

Inter-institutional project without special funding (2003-2012): Management of the archaeological cultural resource “La Ciudacita” (research, conservation and dissemination). Campo de Los Alisos National Park (Province of Tucumán). Administration of National Parks – Secretariat of Culture of the Province of Tucumán – National University of Tucumán.

Directors: PhD. Verónica Williams and BA. Carlos A. Aschero.

Co-Director and team coordinator: PhD. Alejandra Korstanje.

Field Coordinator: PhD. Alvaro Martel


FUNDAMENTALS:

The Inca ruins of the archaeological site called «La Ciudacita», «Nevados del Aconquija» or «Old Town of Aconquija», located at 4,400 meters high in the Sierra de Aconquija, jurisdiction of the Campo de Los Alisos National Park (Province of Tucumán ), constitute a cultural resource of great magnitude and importance, represented by a numerous set of stone-built structures, making up one of the largest settlements of the Inka Empire in northwestern Argentina. Its high heritage value contrasts with the conditions in which it is with respect to the current state of archaeological knowledge and the state of conservation of its units and the complex. The present management approach aims to recover and maintain its physical integrity and its meaning, highlighting the set of interests included in its potential cultural, historical, social, scientific, educational and economic values, in short, it focuses on its conservation and development. These aspirations revolve around three interrelated and interdependent lines of action: its systematic investigation, the preservation of its integrity and constituent parts, and the public use that will generate and ensure such treatment conditions (APN 2001). La Ciudacita is part of the settlement system of Kollasuyu, the largest province of the Inca empire, whose conquest began in 1430 and came to cover the extension from Lake Titicaca (Bolivia) to the province of Mendoza (Argentina) and the northern half of Chile. Throughout that territory, the establishments are connected through the Qhapaq Ñan – Andean Main Road, a road system that as a “corridor” reflects the complex, effective and global organization of the imperial state. In this regard, «La Ciudacita» is one of the sections selected as part of the set of resources proposed by Argentina to integrate the Cultural Landscape of the Qhapaq Ñan – Main Andean Road in the process of nomination before UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The magnitude of the ruins, its high altitude location and its relationship with the Inka trail, its “pure” Inca character (Raffino 1991), as well as the beauty of the environment, make it a site of interest for the visit of mountaineers, students and tourists, who come to the place with progressive frequency over time.


OBJECTIVES:

The general objective of this project is to recover a cultural asset of high heritage value, which in turn is part of the set of assets associated with the Qhapaq Ñan – Main Andean Road. This action is understood as its systematic management and integration into the active conservation of the resources that make up the heritage of the Protected Area, its zones of local influence (Tucumán and Catamarca) and the Northwest Argentine region, taking into account that such maintenance and the projection of its value constitute a viable factor for conservation and development. The particular objectives of the proposal point to the lines of action of the Management of Cultural Resources considered interrelated and interdependent, because knowledge of the resource and its meaning will guide conservation, and both the information available and the stability of the place will allow its dissemination and the opportunity for the socio-economic development of the associated communities:

  • Systematize the investigation of the site to account for the cultural information (material and immaterial) that it possesses through anthropological and archaeological knowledge, establish its associations and relationships with other sites and also contribute to regional archeology. These research objectives are specified in detail later, in the corresponding section of the proposed activities.
  • To develop research also in the field of community identity processes regarding the perception and empowerment / current social use of the cultural resource and / or its access routes / environment. Also elaborate a participatory diagnosis of both the socio-productive structures, as well as those institutional ones that exercise state / official authority and / or traditional leadership as well as the capacity of the grassroots organizations for the resource co-management.
  • Preserve site integrity and its environment -the set of ruins and the surrounding natural environment- as constituent parts of the same unit, taking into account that the existing relationships between the various natural and cultural elements of the place are those that determine the degree of stability of the complex and establish the link between cultural wealth and biodiversity both in the Protected area and in its buffer and influence zone.
  • Disseminate the cultural resource by proposing the ordering of a sustainable public use, through educational, interpretive and tourist recreational activities, guaranteeing society’s access to heritage, the preservation of the property and the safety of the visitor.
  • Promote social participation of communities in the area of ​​influence of the protected area in the different stages and lines of action of the cultural resource management project, contributing to the revaluation of heritage and social / spiritual and economic development (including, among other things, searching for solutions to the difficulties of connectivity and regional relations). Contributing, in synthesis, to the improvement of the quality of life of the populations, the conservation and promotion of the cultural, social and natural capital associated with La Ciudacita and the Qhapaq Ñan, retaking the original principles of their construction: economic development, integration and communication.
