In this paper I have enquired about the category "andinos" that is used by certain social leaders in their relations with the State of the City of Buenos Aires to refer to people whom migratory studies usually classify according to their national origin as Bolivians, Peruvians or internal migrants from Argentina. It is based on two divergent theoretical perspectives: one that examines the difference between established and outsiders and the other that holds social values as founders of a community. The category "andinos" refers to a work of communalization these leaders carry on in order to turn into political subjects those sectors usually excluded from the public debate. The analysis is based on semi-structured interviews, informal discussions, field notes and journalistic and documentary material.
