Abstract

The interview to María Quiñelén, educator and medicine woman, fits into the work for the enhancement of the traditional knowledge by the UNESCO Chair at the University of Florence. It presents a valuable testimony on education Mapuche to the peace directly from the inside of this indigenous culture that still lives conflict situations in the context of Chile. The Mapuche education is of opposite sign to that of the West based on "fear", the "no" and the "secret", which generate uncertainty, dependency, foreignness, disagree. It feeds the experience of being part of the whole, which gradually diversified: the constraint with the whole and with others makes a people of peace, not invading. It is a community education respectful of others, which communicates everything with everyone, where everyone takes care of the head (mind), the spirit (life widespread in the past and present), the territory (the culture), feelings (the heart).
