Poema de solidaridad con mis hermanos mapuches:
La mujer mapuche
Autora Cándda Pedersen
La mujer mapuche
es una bella melodía
como una linda flor
que pide justicia
para crecer en una
sin tener que sentirse
prisionera del dolor
con el profundo llanto
de una cruel discriminación.
El Pueblo Mapuche
son manos que trabajan
con sudor y sin descanso
por la Tierra
