Up on the hill behind their homes, we had to snap a pic. As Eli could see, I was the ladies man. LoL #Mapuche #Santiago #Chile #KonnectedTv

These women greeted us in their traditional outfits and welcomed us into their homes. They shared wonderful and powerful things, and though I was thousands of kilometers from home, they made me feel like I wasn't that far at all. How? With Mapuche pride and hospitality. #MuchasGracias #KonnectedTv

I was on the edge of a small #Mapuche community near/in #Santiago. I had no idea how great and inspiring my day was going to be. Why am I here? #KonnectedTv

This young woman was amazing in the truest sense of the word. Her words and thoughts represented her people so well. She was wise and powerful beyond her years. Why? Because of her Mapuche pride. She rapped (and rocked) a few verses from her heroes, a Mapuche group #Wechekeche #KonnectedTv
