War Mapu narrates the embed conflict of the indigenous Mapuche
people in Chile, a struggle in which state-sponsored companies
exploit the ñukemapu (Mother Earth).
In the Mapudungun language, Mapuche means “people of the
earth”. Its ancestral culture is based on the connection and
coexistence with the four elements, water, air, fire and earth.
Since the first settlers, the Mapuche people have always tried to
defend their territory and way of life. The countless victims have
always been perpetrated and concealed by Chilean economic
and political power.
International and national organizations have repeatedly
denounced and condemned the excessive violence and repeated
violations of human rights. Nowadays the Mapuche live this open
war, silenced, between their love of their culture and the fear of
violence and oppression exerted on them.
