ABSTRACT
Two written pieces on the matter of indigenous peoples by the Cuban writer, Alejo Carpentier (the novel Los Pasos Perdidos and the story Los Advertidos) have led some to give the author the title of “anthropologist”. This title, however, can be called into question when these pieces – and others in the same context – are examined in light of what would be a specifically anthopoligal attitude in Latin American narrative.
