Yolanda Curruhuinca with her daughter and great-granddaughters,
Villa Quila Quina, Argentina
"... in the old days the area was ours... the white people who live here today aren't to blame, it was their parents, their grandparents... in the past I used to fight - all my children, my grandchildren, my great-grandchildren - but today there's no need, they have the land, it's done....but it was difficult... one day I'd like to talk with Cristina... tell her everything that happened, the truth... not what it says in the books... lies... but today I've found peace, I think a lot... day by day I find more peace... I don't fight anymore for land, do you know why? Because my life is nearly over... each day, one day less on this earth... each day more that I live is a day less for me...
... I'm really proud to be Mapuche... of course..."
