This work analyzes the mobility, settlement patterns and socio-political organization of the Western Toba bands of Northern Argentina from a classic anthropological perspective, based on ethnographic and historical research. The more specific and innovative contributions of the analysis are on the mapping and description of range sizes and patterns of mobility of bands around the 1930s; a description of the nature of Toba egalitarian leadership in relation to the social organization of bands; and the contextualization of ethnographic data within an historical framework.
