The histories will be supported by drawings on the mitólogia mapuche, realized by Julio Muñoz,mapuche artist.These histories will be projected in rural schools for the mapuche children.
What locality or neighborhood will your project focus on?
Describe the specific community with whom you will be working.
Will be worked with rural communities mapuche and by schools indigenous, located in surroundings of the city of Osorno. These communities have no representative online, from what this project represents an important window for them, to share his culture and of certain way to rescue her, since the histories are oral and are getting lost.For me is important that not indigenous people could meet the cosmovisión mapuche and reduce the discrimination.
What kinds of news, stories and other content will be created?
There will create videos documentary, that narrate the mythology mapuche, with paintings that show the mythological personages of the histories. They will be adapted to a didactic form so that it serves as material of support to the education of the child mapuche. The content will be exhibited in Web site, of name Piam, created for this project, also it will be exhibited in rural schools of the zone.
What technologies and digital tools do you plan to use in the trainings?
Describe the connections that you or your organization have already established that will contribute to the success of the project.
I worked several projects with communities mapuche of the zone and rural schools, we are in constant contact and support. This is a project that we form between all and we see need to create, it is an urgency for the communities to show his history and to share it to the world. Especially in this region, where practically they are no represented, they do not even have any way to express themselves.
How many participants do you think will be involved in your project?
every community will have a representative who will learn to deposit to the platform to interact, and this representative must teach to his community. Up to the moment they are 5 communities and each one is formed of approximately 50 persons. There is a strong commitment on behalf of them with the project and I will be coordinating and working indefinitely so that the most possible grows.
Besides the microgrant funding, what other resources and support are you seeking for your project to ensure its success?
I support unconditionally to the project, of economic form, with technical resources and with my knowledge. In turn I will be looking for more resources to make the project grow in the possible and that has a major scope of beneficiaries. There are cultural indigenous organizations also involved and with strong interest in his development.
