In-game dialogue[]

Main article: Mapuche#In-game_dialogue



The relative stability the Mapuche lived in for centuries was shattered by the encroach of the Spanish during the sixteenth century. The Spanish thought they could easily conquer the Mapuche and their lands. They were mistaken.

The Mapuche were fierce warriors, and consistently battled back the Spanish. After more than a century of warfare, the Spanish admitted defeat and signed a treaty granting the Mapuche rights to their own lands.

The Mapuche lived in wooden huts with thatched roofs called rukas. Hunting, gathering, and small farm plots where they cultivated crops such as potatoes provided most of their food. They typically lived in small, widespread communities oriented around family units. After the Spanish invasion, however, the Mapuche began to band together for protection in larger groups.
