The Mapuche are the largest native minority within the Chilean State, and account for 9% of the population. In towns and villages, the Mapuche communities can still count on the presence of the Machis, healers that treat both body and spirit. 

Bernard travels to the region of Araucania, the Mapuche cultural cradle, to discover the ways in which traditional Mapuche medicine is still practiced today, in relation not only to its traditions and environment, but also in relation to the country’s modern health system. With Rosa Barbosa, a Machi, he immerses himself in a medicine whose curative energy comes from the elements such as the earth, the sea and the mountains.
