With three books in print and regular columns in nationally-circulating journals, Pedro Cayuqueo is at the forefront of Indigenous journalism in Latin America. Cayuqueo's contributions have placed Indigenous issues on both national and international agendas for Chile, and he has become a recognized voice not just for Mapuche concerns, but for Indigenous and inter-cultural intellectual debates across the region.

Coinciding with the United Nations World Conference on Indigenous Peoples, NYU CLACS is hosting the launch launch of Solo por ser indios, La voz de los lonkos, and Esa ruca llamada Chile, by renowned Mapuche and Chilean writer and journalist Pedro Cayuqueo.

Opening remarks will be offered by the Ambassador of Chile to the United States, Juan Gabriel Valdés, Acting Director of NYU’s Hemispheric Institute, Macarena Gómez-Barris, and Nilo Cayuqueo, Mapuche leader from Argentina and member of the United Nation’s Notable Indigenous Elder’s Council.

The event will include a dialogue between Pedro Cayuqueo and CLACS Global Distinguished Professor, Jorge Castañeda.
