This paper analyzes the process of implementation of the Programa de Educación Intercultural Bilingüe (PEIB; Intercultural Bilingual Education Program) focused the Licanantay people, specifically at the Toconao School (San Pedro de Atacama). We examine the schooling practices and discourses that construct representations about the ethnic, intercultural, and Licanantay identities. This article presents seven axes of analysis that articulate an anthropological view about the tension between the homogenizing practices of the school and a new position that Indigenous Law 19.253 and Education Reform allegedly have regarding cultural diversity and cultural differences. In this sense, I will also provide schooling discourses and practices to discuss the complexity of the negotiation and resistance processes that emerge in the Toconao School surrounding intercultural education.
