Abstract

This article examines the role of memory performance in participatory mapping conducted with indigenous residents of the Yukpa community of Toromo in the Sierra de Perija, Venezuela, in the years 2007–2011. The mapping process inspired the speaking of memory, which in turn articulated with autochthonous debates regarding land rights and development strategies. It presents and critically analyses memory performances of violence, exile and deceit, which reflect memory themes constitutive of a ‘duty to remember’ and ‘a duty to map’ so often expressed by Yukpa
