Culturally, socially and economically stifled for decades by the Chilean
government, "the people of the land" are now seen as standing on the way
of modernity. Commonly depicted as violent outcasts, thieves and idles
holding onto a long-gone past, The Mapuche struggle to find their rightful
place within society. Being a divided community, some opt for social
integration and others assert their right to claim their identity. By allowing
you to observe the intimacy of their day-to-day existence, we hope to allow
the Mapuche to reclaim autonomy over their own narratives.
