MEJIA AYALA, Wladimir. Spatiality, indigenous tradition and sustainable tourism: a systemic look at the Sápara hunt in Ecuador. Perspectiva Geográfica [online]. 2017, vol.22, n.2, pp.13-27. ISSN 0123-3769.

The objective of this article is to show the recreation of the indigenous hunting tradition of the Sápara people as a complex and dynamic system that is inscribed in space, which responds to the challenges of sustainable tourism and minimizes negatives impacts. The methodology used is a qualitative approach, privileging participant observation as a method of data collection. The in situ traditional hunting experience of the Sápara people of the Ecuadorian Amazon is presented in the form of a story. In conclusion, it is proposed that, from a systemic perspective, tourism must be immersed in negentropy, which should be achieved through community planning. This should be based on the limits of the physical space in terms of its ability to reproduce goods and services, and the ability of the local community to resist the lure of tourism and its impacts.

Palabras clave : spatiality; general system theory; indigenous tradition; touristification.
