Historia

These groups are known to have had ties with trans-Andean groups with a very similar ceramic style. Nevertheless, the Pitrén people seem to have more cultural similarities with certain groups in Central Chile, especially the Llolleo people. There is little doubt that the later Pitrén groups maintained relations with the El Vergel culture and other proto-Mapuche peoples in the area that ultimately replaced them in occupying the region.
