Ta iñ fijke xipa rakizuameluwün. Historia, colonialismo y resistencia desde el país Mapuche (Santiago: Ediciones de Historia Mapuche, 2012) brings together fourteen Mapuche authors who examine many dimensions of Mapuche history, relying on the concept of colonialism as the axis of debate and reflection on historical, political, cultural, and territorial issues.
