Chile's most famous contributions to literature have come from Nobel Prize poets Pablo Neruda and Gabriela Mistral, whose homes and birthplaces are now museums that attract literary pilgrims to Chile. Neruda's Heights of Machu Picchu Canto General and the autobiographical Memoirs are widely available in English, however Mistral's works are harder to find.
Chilean music, particularly folk music, has had international acclaim since the 1960s, when Violeta Parra and her children Angel and Isabel made their names as politically committed singers and songwriters. During the 1970's and later as exiles, folk groups like Quilapayún and Inti Illimani regularly toured Europe and North America before returning to Violeta Parra. Learn More about Chilean Music...

Chile - Culture
November 22, 2004
Tempestad en una Tetera
Much has been made about the security dispute that came up in the recent APEC meeting and the usual chest-thumpers in the comments section at Michael Totten's blog are chiming in. This is silly. Chile is a sovereign country. While the Secret Service is allowed to coordinate security with local authorities, there's a simple response to the angry, jingoistic crowd wallowing in their self-righteous indignation: Their country; their rules. Don't like it? Don't go. Posted by Randy Paul on November 22, 2004 at 07:11 PM in

Unsourced material may be challenged and removed (September 2009) Picture of a huaso and a country girl in a wheatfield The culture of Chile is one of a relatively homogeneous society where historically its geographical isolation and remoteness has played a key role. Since colonial times the Chilean culture has been a mix of Spanish colonial elements and indigenous (i.e. Mapuche ) culture. Traditional Chilean culture is of rural and agrarian origin where horsemen, the Huasos of Central Chile , are the most emblematic symbol. While Chile has a geographically diverse territory the lifestyle of the Central Chile have not been possible everywhere and different customs exists towards the north and south of Chile. To this it must added that while some regions of Chile have very strong indigenous heritage such as Araucanía Region Easter Island and Arica y Parinacota Region . Some regions lacks indigenous peoples and a few other regions have noteworthy non-Spanish European immigrant heritage. However, the mainstream Chilean culture that emanates from the historical core of central Chile is of predominant

    The self-name is cultura chilena
    Identification. chilli chilote culture emerged over the centuries from a relatively harmonious blending of Indian and Spanish backgrounds; this culture is characterized by rich traditions of music, dance, and mythological tales. Some two thousand miles off the coast of Chile lies the remote Eastern Island, which is inhabited by twenty-eight hundred native islanders who still keep alive many of their Polynesian cultural traditions. Location and Geography. Chilean culture is located within the confines of the Republic of Chile, although today some 800,000 Chileans are living abroad. Most of them left the country since the mid-1970s as a result of the political and economic hardships of the military regime that ruled from 1973 to 1990. Between the huge Andes Mountains (to the east) and the lower Coastal mountains (to the west) is the great Central Valley, which extends from Salamanca, north of Santiago, for over 620 miles (1,000 kilometers) south to Puerto Montt. The country has a total area of 292,260 square miles (756,950 square kilometers).

    n many ways the Chilean culture is more European in style than Latin American, due to the preponderance of European immigrants in Chile. Despite the apparent diversity of the population, however, Chileans have remained relatively homogenous. Immigrants coming to this land have been assimilated into the culture without prejudice and have accepted the predominance of the Spanish language, and the strong influence of Roman Catholicism. The geographical isolation of the country seems to have further insulated the people from global ethnic sparring. The influence of the Roman Catholic Church is felt; abortion is illegal. Although there are over one million Native American Indians in Chile, they live in the far reaches of the north and south. Their culture and customs are officially protected by the Indigenous Peoples Law. There is general respect for the human rights of all Chilean citizens. Perceptions of human rights abuses generally date back to the military rule of the 1970s. Chile has a well-trained work force with high productivity. Education is emphasized as a means to a better life, and the great majority of young people receive secondary education, many in technical and professional specialities. Chile has a large, well-educated middle class.

    Chile South America
    CULTURE Two lively and contrasting cultural strains predominate in Chile: the cosmopolitan culture of the affluent urban population, and the popular culture of the peasants, which is predominantly Spanish but contains traces of Araucanian heritage. The latter influences are strongest in Chilean music and dance. Chile has a flourishing literary tradition and has produced two Nobel Prize winners in literature, Gabriela Mistral and Pablo Neruda, both poets. Language and a common history have promoted cultural homogeneity in the country. Even the Araucanians and certain Aymara minorities in the north share the values of the Chilean identity, while continuing to cherish their own cultural heritage. Chileans have always displayed a high degree of tolerance toward the customs and traditions of minority groups, as well as toward Christian and non-Christian religious practices. The flavour of local custom and tradition in Chile is readily observable in the numerous colourful religious festivals that take place at various localities throughout the country. Hundreds of thousands of spectators are drawn to these processions.

    Through a European influenced educational system, you can also see a great love for the arts, which is represented in many museums and theatre productions. Pablo Neruda and Gabriel Mistral are sons of Chile that went on to gain world acclaim for their poetry. Cinema is also a large medium for artistic expression in Chile.
    Futbol (soccer) as in most of the world is the most popular sport of Chile. The country hosted the World Cup games in 1962, where they placed in third, which was their best showing of all time. The Chilean version of Rodeo is very popular in more rural areas and draw huge crowds that rival those in the Futbol contingent.
    With great access to the Pacific, surfing is very popular in Chile and you can find many great surf beaches near Santiago. Skiing and snowboarding are huge through out the country and world class given the heights of the Andes. Basketball is gaining some exposure in the country, but is not nearly as big as what you find in Europe and North America. Like most people in South America, the majority of Chileans have been brought up to worship in the Catholic Church. Only 1 out of 10 people would consider themselves part of a different religion. Protestants make up the biggest portion of this minority. The Catholic church remains a major influence on the people. This can be seen in its Cathedrals and other Churches which were built with much grandeur. You will of course find individual local influences on traditions and ceremonies of the church.

    urrounded on three sides by virtually impassable barriers, Chile's rich central valley remained largely unknown to the outside world until the middle of the fifteenth century, when the Incas began their great conquests of much of the continent. Under Tupac Yupanqui, an Inca army succeeded in crossing the six hundred mile string of salt basins that are the Atacama Desert, moving from oasis to oasis in a region so dry that some parts of it show no evidence of ever having been rained upon. After coming at last into the central valley, the Incas encountered the Mapuche, one of the three Araucanian peoples who occupied the region.
    The invading army seemed at first to be enjoying the same success that the Incas were experiencing all over South America, and they advanced about half way down the valley's five hundred mile length. However, the Incas soon found that they had met their match in the Mapuche, who decisively defeated the Incan attempt to cross over the Rio Maule into the Lake District. The Incas established a stable presence in the territory they had gained, but they did not see fit to pursue the redoubtable Mapuche any further.
    Less than a century later, a Spanish army attempted to do just that. In 1541, Pedro de Valdavia crossed into the central valley, having followed the Inca road south from Peru. He founded Santiago in February, and soon afterward crossed into Mapuche domains and established strongholds there. In 1553, in a gesture no doubt familiar to the Spaniard Valdavia, they bound him to a tree and beheaded him.

    Chile, republic, south-western South America, bordered on the north by Peru, on the east by Bolivia and Argentina, and on the south and west by the Pacific Ocean. It has an extreme north-south length of around 4,272 km, but its average width is less than 180 km. Archipelagos extend along the southern Chilean coast from Chiloé Island to Cape Horn, the southernmost point of the South American continent. Among these are the Chonos Archipelago, Wellington Island, and the western portion of Tierra del Fuego. Other islands belonging to Chile include the Juan Fernández Islands, Easter Island, and Sala y Gómez, all of which lie in the South Pacific. The nation has a total area of 756,636 sq km. Chile also claims a section of Antarctica. The capital and largest city is Santiago. When the first Spanish arrived, Quechua tribes inhabited the northern region, and Araucanian tribes inhabited the central region and the northern part of the sothern region. The Incas were in control of the northern area and part of central Chile . Warlike Araucanian tribes, who held the Incas back, dominated much of the rest of the country . The first Spanish settlements were established in the mid-sixteenth century: Santiago in 1541 and Concepcion in 1550. The settlers had to face repeated assults from the Araucanians. In 1541, a Spaniard, Pedro de Valdivia, founded Santiago. Chile won its independence from Spain in 1818 under Bernardo O'Higgins and an Argentinian, José de San Martin. O'Higgins, dictator until 1823, laid the foundations of the modern state with a two-party system and a centralized government.
