WENTEMAPU

We have the area where the Wenteches live, the land of the valleys and the great rivers of the Mapuche territory. It has always offered great conditions for agricultural development.

Wenteche is an area where the various roles like Longko, Gempin, Werken, Machi, Kimche, which are cultural heritage of the Mapuche people, remains in force. At the same time, some ancestral custom like Ngillatun, Eltün, Palin, Mizagün and Elüwün are recognised. These days Wenteche also stands out on the variety of it’s handcraft, textile, silversmith’s craft and other artistic expressions.
