Neuquin legends respond to different orders of situations. Some are more similar to the millennial accounts of the Mapuche people , others are directly linked to natural phenomena and a smaller handful respond to what could be called urban legends or citadines
The city of Neuquén and its surroundings, is the largest population spot in the Patagonian region . However, this beautiful city nestled between bardas and rivers exploded demographically in recent decades. Before being the modern and neat city it is today, the type of life that prevailed in the region was rather like the rural one. The oldest neighborhoods of the city are the closest to the river and by the 50` constituted the singular mix of nascent city and untamed area.
The area was surrounded by farms surrounded by huge tamarisks and waterlogistic areas where fauna, flora and environment resisted becoming a city of cement , much less asphalt. In this hybrid of city blooming and rurality perishing , the s legends and myths were ordinary currency.
The legend of Tué Tué can be classified as a scary placebo for boys and girls who cannot stay calm at night. According to some people over forty years of age, they were kept silent as boys and above all, not whistling . If this was breached by them, the older ones told them with fear that Tué Tué would attack them .
But in this popular cosmology what is Tué Tué? According to the stories, this name corresponds to the devil's bird or the witches' bird. The bird would become a kind of huge and very squeaky owl (tué tué would be the onomatopoeia of the sound emitted) and with a human face. Specifically, the tué tué tué's face would be wrinkled and similar to that of a witch . Legend says, when it appears he does it behind the person he wants to absorb the soul through his cries , so he must flee at full speed, without looking back
Another of the most popular legends in the province is the “ vivo leather ”. This name is known in the mountain regions to a being of folkloric legends whose shape resembles a cow leather that floats by river currents or lagoons but actually has two bulging eyes like those of a manta raya and a Prominent teeth on the sides of the body with which it attacks and destroies unwary.
The popularity and fear that this phenomenon arouses are of such magnitude, that many people accuse stories of missing children who were deposited in a goat leather floating in the waters to feed the monster . As indicated, this was done so that the monster is not hungry and thus avoid eating adults.
Those who claim to have seen Vivo Leather describe it moving “as when you put in the water horsehair of a horse and move and twist alone , as if they were alive.” Other stories that accompany the legend of living leather, point to black magic. In the waters where live leather floats, groups of people gather to make offerings in exchange for satanic favors.
