Natividad Llanquileo is courageous and lives resistance. She is a fierce Indigenous rights activist from the Mapuche people in Chile. Her activist efforts have concentrated on fighting the criminalization of the struggles of her people and the militarization of their indigenous territories.
She comes from a family of fighters. Her father was active in the Indigenous movement in the 70's, and two of her brothers are currently in jail, accused of being "terrorists" because of their participation in the current Mapuche movement.
Natividad was chose by her people to act as the spokesperson of the weichafe [Mapuche warriors] from the Arauco-Malleco Convergence, an activist group that fights for the self-determination of the Mapuche people. Although she is no longer the spokesperson of this group, she is still active in her fight against the Chilean state.
