abstract

Considering that the dialectic of affirmation and contestation of hegemonies constantly modifies, reconstructs and shifts identities, and that human creativity incessantly reinvents social life, it can be expected that official protection does not guarantee a safe place in the cultural pantheon for CH. Heritage can be integrated to the local cultures or refused by them. It can be forgotten, re-encountered, remade, reinvented or trigger unexpected symbolic meanings and practices. This is a challenge that is perennially placed before the institutions responsible for the protection and conservation of these officially protected treasures.
