Abstract

A comparative analysis of the use of psychoactive plants in northern Chile, specifically San Pedro de Atacama and the Middle Loa and its tributaries (Caspana, Toconce, Lasana, Chiu-Chiu), with NW Argentina, as a probable diagnostic tool of shifting patterns of interaction. This work presents a review of the evidence for the ingestion of psychoactive plants in northern Chile and NW Argentina with particular emphasis on chronology, iconography and modes of ingestion. The iconographic and stylistic differences, as well as the divergence in chronology, suggest shifts in patterns of interaction between northern Chile and NW Argentina. Un análisis comparativo del uso de plantas sicoactivas en el norte de Chile, especialmente San Pedro de Atacama y Loa medio y sus tributarios (Caspana, Toconce, Lasana, Chiu-Chiu) en relación al noroeste argentino, se presenta como una posible herramienta de dignóstico de cambios de los patrones de interacción entre ambas regiones. Este trabajo es una revisión de las evidencias de ingestión de plantas sicoactivas en el norte de Chile y noroeste argentino con énfasis en la cronología, iconografía y modos de ingestión. Las diferencias iconográficas y estilísticas, así como la divergencia cronológica, sugieren cambios en los patrones de interacción entre el norte de Chile y el noroeste argentino.
