  • Quienes son las mujeres indígenas en Chile

    Submitted by FRANCESCA COMPAGNONE on 07/11/2017 on TERRITORIAL DEVELOPMENT WITH CULTURAL IDENTITY

    Actualmente, el 9,2% de las mujeres que residen en el país se identifican como parte de los nueve pueblos indígenas reconocidos por la ley chilena, acercándose a una población de 850.000 cuya mitad se constituye por niñas y jóvenes[1] (Casen, 2015). Se trata de mujeres de distintos pueblos que existen en el actual territorio nacional desde tiempos precolombinos: “la Mapuche, Aimara, Rapa Nui o Pascuenses, la de las comunidades Atacameñas, Quechuas, Collas y Diaguita del norte del país, las comunidades Kawashkar o Alacalufe y Yámana o Yagán de los canales australes.” (Art. 1, Ley 19.253). Constituyen por tanto un grupo heterogéneo que se distribuye en todas las regiones del país, si bien la mayoría pertenece al pueblo Mapuche (el 83%), y reside entre la Región Metropolitana, La Araucanía y Los Lagos (respectivamente el 31%, 19% y 13%). [1] El 52,1% es menor de 30 años.

    I come from the city of Valparaiso, where for many years there has been talk of creative economy. That same city that has many problems that everyone knows: fires, unemployment, garbage are a symbol of it. How do you insert the vision of creative economy and dialogue with the city that we live on a daily basis?
