Environment and Location

These hunter gatherers inhabited the south-central part of Chile between the BíoBío River and the Reloncaví Sound, occupying the moist coastal and island ecosystems as well as the temperate forests of the central valleys, the lake basins of the Andean foothills, and the high mountains on both sides of the Andean Divide.
