Resumen:
From actualistic ethnographic and ethnohistorical sources, this article analyses novel artifacts, ecofacts, and granite structures whose functionality is associated with the materialization of the ideational aspects of the mapuche society in the Lacar basin in the 19th and 20th centuries. The current and historical characterization of these artifacts allows to identify and give a retrospective view of the landscape, its resources, and the different practices and forms of interaction of the inhabitants of this territory, beyond the economic and subsistence aspects that have traditionally predominated in the archaeological studies of Patagonia.
