A Lithuanian Argentine is an Argentine person of full, partial, or predominantly Lithuanian ancestry, or a Lithuanian-born person residing in Argentina. During the 1920s about 35,000 Lithuanians arrived in Argentina.
In 1909, a group of Lithuanian immigrants from the cities of Ensenada and Berisso founded the Lithuanian Mutual Aid Society Vargdienis, whose prominent members were the Lithuanian gentlemen Rimavicius, Pavilonis, Boguzas and Baltusis. With less specific dates it is known that even before the First World War there had been organisations of Lithuanian immigrants in Villa Diego, near Rosario, Santa Fe (Ausros Zvaigzde) and in the city of Avellaneda (Susivienijimas Lietuviu Argentinoje). The collectivity of Berisso meanwhile adopted the name of Nemunas, which retains to the present.
