The Pehuenche people of present-day Chile speak Mapudungun: ‘the language of the land.’ This land, their universe, is known as Wallmapu. Two skiers enter, into a breathtaking creation of ancient Araucaria trees, looming volcanoes, and windblown snow.

The legend told by Segundo Curical Curical narrates an amazing tale of the beginning of the universe by the native people of the Chilean Andes.
