La Pampa: Argentine Intangible Cultural Heritage

Today we want to tell you the traditions of the Argentine Intangible Cultural Heritage that have been relieved in the province of La Pampa.


The Ministry of Culture of the Nation has been carrying out, for some time, the survey of the Argentine Intangible Cultural Heritage. It is a tool to gather and share information about  cultural manifestations  that form part of the identity of communities in Argentina. Traditional ways of doing, naming, producing or celebrating that continue to be practiced, which are passed on to the new generations and contribute to strengthening collective ties. Today we want to tell you what have been relieved so far in the province of  La Pampa .

We Tripantu

Celebration of a new solar cycle carried out by ranqueles communities. Particularly in Leubucó near the burial room of the chieftain Mariano Rosas, between 21 and 24 June. First it is done at a family level and on the 23rd the chiefs and the people gather. At midnight a sacred fire of purification is set and traditional music, songs and dances begin. The fire remains in custody and dawn is expected. At the exact sunrise the ngillatun or rogative is made. The ceremony is directed by the machi, who grants the chiefs the permits to make the rogatives. It is motivated by strengthening the roots, struggles, path and spirituality of the ranquel community.
