          Abstract

          Resumen: A partir de hallazgos documentales rastreados en el Archivo Provincial de la ciudad de Tocopilla y en el archivo del Ministerio de Bienes Nacionales, entregamos antecedentes y algunas propuestas para explicar la heterogeneidad y transformaciones internas de la migración china en esta ciudad. Si bien dicho colectivo fue objeto de discriminación y racismo, en especial relacionado con su presencia y actividades en espacios marginales y delictuales de la ciudad, los documentos analizados dan cuenta de la existencia de estrechas redes con diferentes segmentos sociales, que derivaron en la elitización de un fragmento muy visible del mundo chino. Este proceso de elitización estuvo concentrado en un grupo de “grandes hombres” -en especial a partir de los años 30- y vio su consolidación en las décadas siguientes, como lo demuestra la relevante participación de esta comunidad en la transmisión y compraventa inmobiliaria hacia fines de la primera mitad del siglo XX.

          Abstract: Based on documentary findings traced in the Provincial Archive of the city of Tocopilla and in the archive of the Ministry of National Assets, we provide antecedents and some explanatory proposals regarding the heterogeneity and internal transformations of Chinese migration in this city. Although this group was the object of discrimination and racism, especially related to its presence and activities in marginal and criminal spaces of the city, the documents analyzed show the existence of close networks with different social segments, which led to the elitization of a highly visible piece of the Chinese world. This process of elitization was concentrated in a group of "big men" -especially from the 1930s on- and saw its consolidation in the following decades, as evidenced by the relevant participation of this community in the transmission and sale of real estate towards the end. from the first half of the 20th century.
