VOZ spoke with Mapuche ceramist Yessica Huenteman Medina. Working with clay has deepened her connection to the earth as well as to native heritage, which had been systematically suppressed by the Chilean government. She lets us in on her creative process—and how the politics of history have indelibly impressed her work.
Meet #VOZWOMAN Angela Lindvall, supermodel, mother, spiritual coach, and environmental activist. In 2017, we had the pleasure of taking Angela on a trip to Araucania, Chile, to meet Mapuche weavers and immerse ourselves in the beauty of the countryside. Our itinerary was the perfect combination of nature experience and cultural immersion, and most importantly, Angela meeting the weavers in their homes and sharing the wisdom and art of weaving tradition.
