Changes[edit]

Several changes were made to the article:

  • wheat was replaced by maize (since wheat was unknown in America before 16th century).
  • geographical areas were correctly attributed to today's countries (they were inverted)
  • occurences of "indians" changed to more proper terms

However, it still needs major re-editing for historical accuracy sake, and more information. I'll try to do that in the next few days. Meanwhile, I've posted the "Underconstruction" template. Cinabrium 08:16, 14 September 2005 (UTC)


Each section contains some material that seems to belong in the other sections, but I'm not sure how to clean them up. For instance, Diaguita were unique in lack of castes, men were monogamous, etc. Was this only at the time of the Inca invasion, or in general? Pgan002 17:17, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

Diaguites may not exist[edit]

Hi, I went to Jujuy the last spring and I have met an anthropologist from the UBA that it was supporting the idea that Diaguites not exist at all, they were just a made-up of the nineteenth-century historians. There were little tribes that created the buildings in the area, until there were conquered. I'm looking for sources in the Internet for support this claim, the guy was very convinced of this BorisDelMas 19:40, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Do you mean that they didnt existed? Do you have sources? Sounds interesting, if that is true why ddint earrly spaniards notice that? Diego de Almagro and other conquistadores that traveled in Norte Chico and nortern Argentina should have noticed that they didnt spoke same language.. Even if "Diaguitas" as we know them from the school books may not exist, the inhabitants of Norte Chico needs a name (even if its origin is incorrect). Dentren | Talk 17:48, 6 October 2007 (UTC)
WEll, I'm not saying that they did not "exist", just that the Chilean Diaguitas were named thus by Ricado latcham in the 20's, becasuse he thought their pottery was akin to that of Argentinian diaguitas' pottery. Nowadays this is not supported. For sure they existed, but we don't know their name. Archaeologists nowadays divide chilean Diaguitas in Diaguitas proper to the South, and Copiapó Culture to the North. --DaniloVilicic (talk) 04:10, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
