ABSTRACT
This contribution defines the breaking lines between a rural Andean community of Northern Peru and segmented groups who at the same times compose, divide, and run over it. Those divisions are analyzed through the regrouping of land, the providing of collective social services as the development of enterprises who reflect commercial and particularistic interests. Breaking lines and solidarity ties form together a subtle equilibrium where, according to the circumstances, neighborhood, particular action and common origin are in opposition or, at the contrary, in correspondence. The community and the territory around which it reproduces and reconstructs itself permanently is the stake of oppositions between those who identify themselves to a common space where ascendance, residence and common action overlap, and those who make from their sole affirmation of being hijos del lugar or ‘sons of the place’, the pretext to gain private benefits of a material order At the same time, the development of segmented including familiar ties, independently of the communitarian territory, narrows the spaces of solidarity and reinforces the competitivity between them in favor of commercial interests.
