    Matará was an ancient native village. It dates back to the beginning of the XVII century, with the settlement of the Mataraes.

    It was relocated from the vicinity of the city of Concepción de Bermejo to the banks of the Salado River, where the village that bears its name was founded. Its inhabitants belonged to the Tonocoté nation, originally from Tucumán, from where they fled into the Gran Chaco.

    Matará played an important military role on the border of the Salado River during territorial conflicts. It was an inter-ethnic space where, as in all borders, natives, Europeans, half-breeds, and Africans coexisted.

    Matará was a cattle settlement, and an area of military forts. It was here that Juan F. Ibarra and Manuel Taboada were born, both governors in the XIX century. The village still stands in the Juan F. Ibarra Department, 130 kilometres away from the capital city.
