Juana Calfunao, a Mapuche chief of the Juan Paillalef community, is considered internationally to be an ardent human rights activist. In February 2006, Juana was awarded the Chico Mendes Medal of Resistance in Brazil. However, upon returning home to Chile, Juana is treated as a criminal. She is imprisoned for several years, and must deal with a corrupt justice system that responds to the claims of the Mapuche by throwing them behind bars.
