  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of three people Raquel, Mapuche mother, Yvan, Chilean father of Santiago, and Alvaro, our 19 year old son studying agricultural technician. We live in the middle of nature at the exit of the village of Curarrehue (an hour from Pucon), surrounded by native forests, rivers and slopes. We have a family camp with sheep, cows, different birds, ducks, chickens, goats, dogs and cats. Also an orchard and medicinal plants, and fruit trees. We practice ecological agriculture and we are open to continue learning the most respectful and balanced ways of working with the fruits of nature.

    Raquel, as a Mapuche leader, participates in organizations for local development. That is why we are very involved in the life of the Mapuche community, trying to transmit, care and protect the knowledge of the Mapuche culture, its language, its history, its customs and spirituality.

    We live in a very simple way, always as natural as possible, we believe in human relationships of collaboration and mutual help, always within the truth and mutual respect.

    Somos una familia de tres personas Raquel, madre mapuche, Yvan, padre chileno de Santiago, y Alvaro, nuestro hijo de 19 años estudiando técnico agricola. Vivimos en medio de la naturaleza a la salida del pueblo de Curarrehue (a una hora de Pucon), rodeado de bosques nativos, rios y de vertientes. Tenemos un campo familiar con ovejas, vacas, distintas aves, patos, gallinas, ganzos, perros y gatos. También una huerta y plantas medicinales, y arboles frutales. Practicamos la agricultura ecologica y estamos abiertos a seguir aprendiendo las formas mas respetuosas y equilibradas de trabajar con los frutos de la naturaleza.

    Raquel, como dirigente mapuche, participa en organizaciones para el desarrollo local. Por eso somos muy implicados en la vida de la comunidad Mapuche, tratando de transmitir, cuidar y proteger el conocimiento de la cultura Mapuche, su idioma, su historia, sus costumbres y espiritualidad.

    Vivimos de una forma muy simple, siempre lo mas natural posible, creemos en las relaciones humanas de colaboracion y ayuda mutua, siempre dentro de la verdad y el respeto mutuo.
