100 years after the massacre of the Pilagá indigenous people in Fortín Yunká, a group of researchers are studying the historical process and its connection with the current processes of construction and questioning of social asymmetries. To do this, they analyze the discourses and narratives of multiple archives and those of social memory about this historical event, with confluences and divergences between the different frameworks of analysis.
Its objective is to contribute to the historiographic visibility of state policies towards native populations : both to observe the construction of indigenous stereotypes and to replace names, trajectories, life histories and social networks that contribute to understanding the complexity of historical events. .
Several of the works included in this volume revisit these contributions and problematize the massacre in the context of state policy in the territorial and provincial period of Formosa, since it is an act of military violence against an indigenous people of the central Chaco.
