South American Mapuche
Community Media Center of Marin
Art Exhibit and Presentation
Colorful pencil drawings by Juana Calfunao, a Mapuche Lonko (indigenous community chief in Chile), are on exhibit from May 5 thru June 4 at CMCM. The artist has been a political prisoner in Chile since 2006 as a result of her struggle to reclaim her community's ancestral lands from control of logging corporations.
There will be a reception from 5:00 to 8:30 PM and a presentation at 7:00 with photos and a film documenting the cruelty endured by this indigenous community in Chile and their resistance to the ongoing repression. Carolina Dutton will give an eyewitness report about the injustices to which these courageous people are continually subjected.
Copies of the artwork are for sale, and proceeds will benefit the Mapuche resistance movement.
This project is sponsored by the Task Force on the Americas. For more information call 415/924-3227.
