Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This document is a study of the structure of Mapuche
society with emphasis on structural continuity and change set in a context of ecological
adjustment. Contrary to Titiev, the author does not see Mapuche society as 'breaking down'
but as a functioning entity. Major structural changes occurred as a result of adaptation to
reservation life (after 1884) and minor adjustments continue. The formation of localized,
corporate patrilineages was one result. This group forms the core of the residential kin
group (see OCM 618). Other developments were a matrilateral marriage system and
multi-reservational ritual congregations.
