Description

In 2010 Chile and several Latin-American countries celebrate two centuries of independence. This general context will offer an interesting opportunity for a retrospective analysis of how States have dealt with different issues during their history. One such issue, which will probably suppose more difficulty for Chile than other countries, will be the relationship with the Mapuche people and, above all, the conflict with the the movement that has emerged within the Mapuche.

The following article intends to contribute to this analysis by examining the movement that has become the most important and consistent phenomenon in terms of political participation and media impact in Chile in the last 20 years. In order to do this, we will analyze the process of emergence of the Mapuche movement in the last couple of decades through different perspectives that study collective action and social movements. By so doing we will try to test the use of such theories as regards indigenous movements and, above all, we will try to elucidate if the Mapuche people have anything to celebrate in this independence bicentenary.
