The Mapuche are the largest native minority within the Chilean State, and account for 9% of the population. Mapuche communities can count on the Machis, healers that treat body and spirit. Bernard Fontanille travels to the region of Araucania to discover the ways in which traditional Mapuche medicine is practiced in relation to its traditions and environment, and the country's modern health system. With Rosa Barbosa, a Machi, he immerses himself in a medicine whose curative energy comes from the elements.
