Synopses & Reviews
Also known as selk'nam, Ona Indians, together with the Y?mana, were the first settlers to Tierra del Fuego, the most southern tip of South America. This tribe had to face extremely and unceasingly cold weather. They were nomad hunters, without chieftainship (except in times of war), but with a fair territory division: each family or community had its own hunting area. Guanacos and seal skins furnished dwelling material. They stressed ceremonial body paint. This book includes, among other stories, Kenos revive a la gente, El carancho y el cormor?n, and El amigo de los indios. Profusely illustrated, this work gives a historical, social, cultural and updated account on this community, . Likewise, it includes some Thematic Project ideas.
