Mapuche communities of Chile and Argentina


Imágenes andinas

Bright silver jewellery on black cloth and hair, traditional sashes based on ancient loom patterns, working tools and musical instruments resisting the pass of time: the Mapuche communities provide a wide spectrum of forms and colours which come out in all their glory at community gatherings and ceremonial celebrations such as the ngillatun.

The picture gallery by Picassa user Miles portrays Mapuche daily life through beautiful and inspiring black and white pictures taken in Araucanian communities in 1984.
