In the Willimapu territory of southern Chile, water is at the heart of conflicts involving contemporary extractive industries like hydropower development. For Mapuche communities, territorial defense today involves intercultural knowledge production for mapmaking, court cases, and interdisciplinary water studies. In this presentation, Kelly will discuss the methodological and institutional elements of the research that support the self determination of the Mapuche-Williche Pueblo.
