In Patagonia there is a rich cultural history that is often overshadowed by its natural wonders, our goal is to educate passengers about the first original inhabitants of this beautiful land called Patagonia, such as the Kawésqar, as well as the culture of the Baqueanos and The history stays.
Baqueano is the local version of these so-called cowboys, similar to the guacho in Argentine Patagonia or Brazil, even huaso in northern Chile.
In the 1870s, the Baqueanos were border men and pioneers in the vast plains of Patagonia, doing the work of guides for visitors from Europe and the United States, grazing sheep and cattle, and even hunting guanacos and ñandus for their skins and feathers, in addition to tame wild horses also called Baguales.
In the area there are several paintings of the first inhabitants that were the Aonikenk and Kawésqar, were hunters, nomadic gatherers, are responsible for giving the name to Torres del Paine. When they first saw the granite needles that Torres del Paine is famous for when they arrived in the area in the second half of the first millennium, they called them Paine, which meant "blue" in their language for the shades of their lakes and lagoons.
Unfortunately, the Aonikenk tribe is now completely extinct (most of the native tribes perished with the settlement of the Europeans in the late 1880s), but their culture and way of life are still preserved for posterity.
The Kawésqar aborigines had a lifestyle that was "without a trace", came by canoe approximately in the fifteenth century and lived largely nomadic lives.
To keep his body warm, they lit fires inside the domes, today there are few Kawésqar people and you are living in the town of Puerto Eden, belonging to Puerto Natales and located near the Berbardo O'Higgins National Park for your protection.
