The Potency of Indigenous Bibles and Biographies: Mapuche Shamanic Literacy and Historical Consciousness

Ana Mariella Bacigalupo | SUNY Buffalo
Friday, October 24, 2014
2–4 pm

Mapuche oral shamanic biographies and performances—some of which take the form of “Bibles” and shamanic literacies—play a central role in the production of indigenous history in southern Chile. In this article I explain how and why a mixed-race Mapuche shaman charged me to write about her life and practice in the form of a “Bible.” This book would become a ritual object and a means of storing her shamanic power by textualizing it, thereby allowing her to speak to a future audience. The realities and powers her “Bible” stores can be extracted, transformed, circulated, and actualized for a variety of ends, even to bring about shamanic rebirth. Ultimately, I argue that through their use and interpretation of this “Bible,” Mapuche shamans in southern Chile expand academic notions of indigenous history and literacy.
