El Sol Habla | Los Mapuche en Argentina

Esta semana en el Sol Habla, recalcamos un programa hecho en 2019 por Raleigh Burleigh sobre su jornada al sur para conocer a la lucha ancestral de los Mapuche en Argentina.

This week on el Sol Habla, we highlight a program from 2019 by Raleigh Burleigh about his journey south to become acquainted with ancestral Mapuche (MA-POO-CHAY) resistance in Argentina. 

Raleigh Burleigh was raised in the historic floodplanes of Satank. The Carbondale Rotary Club sponsored him as a youth ambassador to Chile the year before his graduation from Roaring Fork High School. He studied International Affairs and Journalism at the University of Colorado, Boulder then applied those studies traveling throughout South America the following year. Returning to Carbondale thereafter, Raleigh acquired an internship with KDNK News which led to the opportunity to serve as News Director from 2017 to 2019. After another trip to South America in early 2019, Raleigh Burleigh drew deeper into the confluence as Program Director at KDNK. Raleigh now serves on KDNK's board of directors and as editor of Carbondale's weekly newspaper, The Sopris Sun.
