Different authorities and representatives from communities and associations made one Position of spokesman for the Mapuche Town in the Aysén Region, By means of which they rejected the declarations of the deputy of National Renovation (RN) Aracely Leuquén and gave their support to Emilia Nuyado (PS).
According to statements collected by El Calbucano, women called the RN deputy to that "It is recognized as a Mapuche woman" and accept "to sit in a table to talk".

Meanwhile, Zulema Calfulef, president of the indigenous community Calfulef de Coyhaique, invited Leuquén "to a meeting, to sit with us to talk like women that we are and tell us things face to face, not with statements. It has at least one indigenous name and although it is not a Mapuche woman, we invite you to chat at a table with us, we invite you to talk. "
"Today we are several Mapuche authorities with a lot of pain and anger for their words in the media. Miss Aracely Leuquén is not enough to have the mapuche name, when we say we are Mapuche women, we feel it in our & # 39; piuke & # 39 ;, because this blood is the one that runs through our veins, "he said.
