Mapuche means ‘man of the land’ and it is also the name of a group of indigenous inhabitants in South America.
During the southern Winter solstice, between June 21 and June 24, the We Tripantu, the Mapuche New Year fest, takes place with a magical rite in the middle of the nature.
Indigena is a dingbat that remakes the artistic expression of the Mapuche people in Chile, recovering the handmade stroke they used in textiles and ceramics, but with a fresh look.
This dingbat is based on pre-Columbian iconographic drawings shown in the book Dibujos Indígenas de Chile (1929) by chilean art teacher Abel Gutiérrez. http://www.memoriachilena.cl/602/w3-article-86097.html
