    Imagine how many marvelous things we would have learnt from them if they'd live... I'm chilean. There's a Channel sometimes shows images of them and the last Kawéskar descendent's poetic rime profecy. She speaks about the human-selfdestruction but the afterward reborn of it. Try to look for it. Maybe makes you cry as ever does everytime I listen to it.

    Thanking to nice Darwin's Evolution Theory we have lost one of our World's native people. The colonists thought as exact Darwin's way that they were less than beasts and didn't have the right to live. It's a pitty shame in the Universal History. Kawéskars are our extinct ancestors as Onas and Chonos by europian colonists...

    I had a feeling right from the beginning it was going to end with what no indigenous tribe could ever survive... "the arrival of europeans". Yep, they all died.

    Humans will eventually create their own extinction, one race at a time.
