DUQUESNOY, Michel. Mapuche Williche Women in Gala Port (Aysén): Between Merluzas, Identity Engineering and Feminist Sobrieties Sui Generis. Nueva antropol [online]. 2018, vol.31, n.88, pp.116-133. ISSN 0185-0636.

This is a look at a population group on the island world of the far-southern zones of Chile, the Aysén region. There are few anthropological or sociological studies on the presence of Mapuche Williche (southern Mapuche) who undertook temporary or permanent migration there. Nor are there many studies on gender in this island group. The first objective is to take an analytical approach to this presence from the point of view of gender, with which the author evaluates the importance of Williche women in the Gala island group. I will turn to the sui generis concept of feminism. The second objective refers to the identity component, to which the group analyzed adds the ethnic component in a region far from the ancestral Williche territory.

Keywords : Gala Islands (Chile); Mapuche Williche women; ethnic identity; sui generis feminism.
