Abstract

El largo informe del capitán de corbeta Jorge Tapia de la Barra sobre la Isla de Pascua, de 1950, permite recabar una serie de antecedentes y de “índices” sobre lo que allí ocurría, así como el grado de complejidad que se había generado en las relaciones de la sociedad rapanui, la Armada, la Compañía Explotadora de Isla de Pascua y la sociedad civil. En su lectura se aprecian los factores que gatillarán los cambios que se producirán en 1953 y que conducirán a la “nacionalización de la Isla”.The long 1950 report of Lieutenant Commander Jorge Tapia de la Barra about Easter Island allows us to gather a series of precedents and “signs” of what was happening there, as well as the degree of complexity that had been generated in the relationships between the Rapanui society, the Navy, the Easter Island Exploitation Company and the civil society. When reading them, we can appreciate the factors that will trigger the changes that will take place in 1953 and that will lead to the “nationalization of the island”
