Museum La Chakana

Museum La Chakana

Project start: März 2008

Sponsors: Wikinger Reisen

Description: In many South American countries traditions get lost while the society is modernizing and progressing. The youth of traditional living communities, like indigenous people or shepherds, leave their original home and settle in suburbs of cities. In most cases that means losing contact to their community and additionally not being able to establish contact to the modern community of the city. Leftovers are: left villages, unemployed youth and lost traditions. To counter this problem, the foundation TrekkingChile, together with Wikinger Reisen, is building a “museum-village” in 3,500 m height, just outside Putre.
