Recent works from three Mapuche artists are analyzed in the article: The collection of poems Río herido by Daniela Catrileo, the performance Warriache by Camila Huenchumil, and the albums Trafun and Wanglen by Daniela Millaleo. I propose reading these productions as decolonizing recados that represents the consequences of the uprooting and forced exile from Wallmapu to the urban periphery, set against the backdrop of post-dictatorial Chile. The three artists reconstruct their place of belonging in the city as Mapuche women in resistance from different viewpoints and through different artistic formats, thus creating chi'xi (Rivera) discourses that place tension on the question surrounding indigenous identity.
