Visit Mapuche Community
Monday 3rd at 10:30h
Mapuche are the largest indigenous groups in Chile, comprising about 84 per cent of the total indigenous population. The majority of Mapuche people live in Chile’s cities, mainly Concepción, Temuco and Santiago. The Mapuche community “Petu Mongeleiñ Mahuidache” is located in the commune of El Bosque in the Metropolitan Region. It has a Ceremonial Center made up of four ‘ruka’ (traditional Mapuche houses) and is currently managed by several Mapuche communities in collaboration. Their administrative relationship is managed between the municipality of El Bosque and the self-management work that they themselves do. This community is made up of people who decades ago had to emigrate from the countryside to the city and who have raised their families in Santiago. It is a space for revitalization and resistance in the context of the city of Santiago, the capital of Chile. In this space, various activities are carried out to strengthen the Mapuche people in Santiago and to make aspects of the Mapuche culture known to all people.
The space to visit the Mapuche community “Petu Mongeleiñ Mahuidache” includes: Visit to the space, conversation about Mapuche themes in a ‘ruka’ around the fire, accompanied by sopaipillas and wheat coffee and the delivery of a small souvenir of the visit. The visit will be guided by the keynote Carolina Kürüf Poblete Gálvez. Carolina Kürüf Poblete Gálvez is a woman indigenous Mapuche and an academic at the University of Santiago, Chile.
The visit costs 7000 Chilean pesos ($8.70 USD) for the Mapuche community and 24000 Chilean pesos ($29.80 USD) for transportation (total 31000 Chilean pesos or $38.50 USD). A group transport option will leave from the Abba hotel, confirmed once numbers are established.
Places are limited so get in early. Payment deadline 23rd June.
