Les Apaches face à la colonisation et globalisation du réel et de l'imaginaire

Abstract : The present contribution shows the different mechanisms of differentiation that were instrumentalized during the so-called decolonization processes in the American continent in order to preserve domination. Through the socio-historical analysis of the Apache people we observe the tools that established the « abysmal line » between the two types of population: dominant and dominated. The Apache case, a nation trapped, racialized and rejected by two states (Mexico and the United States), allows us to reveal the way in which both the real (violent extermination) and the collective imaginary (symbolic violence of popular culture) are colonized. In this way we show that the Nation-States reinforced colonial differentiation and that, hand in hand with globalization, they have « objectified » and caricatured peoples other than the colonist, Criollo, dominant. This continues to open the gap that divides populations two centuries after independence.
