Abundant Viluco ceramics recovered in different contexts in the city of Mendoza, founded in 1561, demonstrate the presence of Huarpe ethnic groups during the period of Inca domination and the first centuries of the Spanish colonial occupation. The study of this ceramic style and its integration with the archaeological and ethnohistorical data have opened a window onto the potting practices of local groups in changing situations, and their function as visual symbols of power in the construction of new identities among these populations.
