The name AflaIai is the word used by the Mapuche people to mean “eternal.” This group came together to revive their cosmovision and ensure its eternity through promoting their language, culture, its values and spirituality. In doing so, they hope to heal the earth and enrich the larger community. One of the highlights of their work has been to promote gatherings between Mapuche women, the ones who have been entrusted to share their ancestral knowledge.  Another highlight has been to restore the cultivation of medicinal plants, a practice which has been replaced by the commercial venture of ornamental plants.
