English: There are thirty-five indigenous groups in Argentina, or Argentine Amerindians, according to the Complementary Survey of the Indigenous Peoples of 2004, in the first attempt in more than a hundred years that the government tried to recognize and classify the population according to ethnicity. In the survey, based on self-identification or self-ascription, around 600,000 Argentines declared to be Amerindian or first-generation descendants of Amerindians, that is, nearly 2% of the population. The most populous of these were the Mapuche, Kolla, Wichí and Toba peoples. Indigenous cultures in Argentina have been affected by a process of invisibilization, promoted by the government since the second half of the 19th century.
Español: El poblamiento humano del actual territorio de Argentina tiene una antigüedad de entre 10.100 y 13.000 años AP, de acuerdo a los hallazgos de Piedra Museo, en la región patagónica. Con posterioridad se conformaron tres regiones muy marcadas: en el cuadrante del noroeste andino se establecieron culturas agroalfareras emparentadas con la civilización andina y una parte de ellas llegó a integrar el Imperio inca; en el cuadrante nordeste se establecieron culturas agroalfareras emparentadas con la familia tupí-guaraní; en el cono sur de la pampa y la Patagonia se establecieron culturas nómades.
