WARRIOR AND DIPLOMATIC LEADERSHIP OF THE GREAT NIZOL LONGKO DE LAS PAMPAS: JUAN KALLFUKURRA (1831-1871)
- Juan Kallfukurra was a wajmapu nizol longko. He ruled the pampas. He established diplomatic and military alliances. He triumphed in multiple fights, and was also defeated many times. Its history is confused with myth due to the legendary days beyond the Andes, in Puelmapu. This manuscript presents some general features of his biographical profile, his career as a leader of the Mapuche people and a sampling of his complex relationship with the Argentine State. In this manuscript we include Manilwenu due to the relevance he had in the resistance and the pre-clarity regarding what the occupation of Mapuche lands by the State of Chile would imply.
