Sea nomads of the Beagle Channel and surrounding areas / Ernesto L. Piana, Myrian R. Alvarez, Nadia S. Rúa.

Title: Sea nomads of the Beagle Channel and surrounding areas / Ernesto L. Piana, Myrian R. Alvarez, Nadia S. Rúa.
Author(s): Piana, Ernesto L.
Alvarez, Myrian R.
Rúa, Nadia S.
Date: 2007.
Publisher: London: Taylor and Francis
In: Antarctic Peninsula and Tierra del Fuego : 100 years of Swedish-Argentine scientific cooperation at the end of the world. Proceedings of "Otto Nordenskjöld's Antarctic expedition of 1901-1903 and Swedish scientists in Patagonia: a symposium", held in Buenos Aires, La Plata and Ushuaia, Argentina, March 2-7, 2003. (2007.),
Abstract: Describes origins, history and socio-economic organisation of Yaghan and Alacaluf peoples of southern Tierra del Fuego and Beagle Channel, based on archaeological research since 1975 which shows that Yaghan were last descendants of adaptive tradition rooted in this area for more than six millennia. Indigenous peoples had developed successful subsistence and technological strategies to cope with environmental constraints, but balance between sea nomads and their natural resources was upset by overhunting of sea lions in their breeding areas by Europeans and North Americans, prior to drastic decrease in population from mid 19th century.
