          Kawésqar crafts are undoubtedly an ambassador of ancestral culture and therefore the artisans who are producing, cultivating and teaching them to new generations, one of the most important rescues that within the indigenous communities is being developed in the Magallanes Region.

Harvesting is a very important initial activity for Kawésqar artisans, which is why it is supported by field trips, which are key to the continuity of this trade by a group of twelve Kawésqar artisans from Puerto Edén, Puerto Natales, and Punta Arenas.

As well as with the visibility of this ancestral tradition, through face-to-face workshops of weaving in jonquil, dictated by the artisan teachers where everything revolves around the Kawésqar culture and intangible heritage and the intercultural dialogue of its participants.
