Feliz fiestas patrias a todos mis hermanos chilenos, les deseo un muy feliz 18 de septiembre :) Conmemorando esta vez no con un personaje de herencia española, sino con uno de nuestros pueblos originarios. Ojala y en medida que avancemos como pais valoremos de donde venimos para poder comprender hacia donde vamos.This image is based in one of the heroes of my land: Lautaro. it was done long time ago, when I spent a couple of months in a hospital, recovering of a pancreas failure, it was a dificult time, but painting in the hospital was really fun and distract me a lot from pain :) I hope you like it.PSCS/4hours/BambooLETS WIKIATTACKLautaro (Mapudungun: Lef-Traru “swift hawk”) (1534–April 29, 1557) was the young Mapuche military commander in the four-year Arauco War (Araucanian War) in Chile. His people undertook to expel the Spanish colonizers. The army under Lautaro’s command inflicted crushing defeats and huge death tolls on Spanish forces despite having far inferior weaponry. As a boy, Lautaro had deliberately allowed himself to be captured by the Spanish in order to learn their secrets, and made no attempt to escape until he felt he had learned enough. In any case, he fled twice, in 1550 and for good in 1552. In 1553 (the year Lautaro turned 19), the Mapuches convened to decide how to respond to the Spanish invasion. The convention decided upon war. The toqui (leader) Caupolicán chose Lautaro as vice toqui because he had served as a page in the Spanish cavalry, and thereby possessed knowledge of how to defeat the mounted conquistadors. Lautaro introduced use of horses to the Mapuche[citation needed] and designed better combat tactics. He organized a large, cohesive army—a military formation unfamiliar to the Mapuche.After the second rout at Concepción, Lautaro desired to attack Santiago. He found scant support for this plan from his troops, who soon dwindled to only 600, but he carried on. In October 1556 his northward march reached the Mataquito River, where he established a fortified camp at Peteroa. In the Battle of Peteroa he repulsed attacking Spanish forces under the command of Diego Cano, and later held off the larger force commanded by Pedro de Villagra. Being advised that still more Spaniards were approaching, Lautaro retreated towards the Maule River. With the Spaniards in hot pursuit he was forced to retire beyond the Itata River. From there he launched another campaign towards Santiago when Villagra’s army passed him by on the way to the save the remaining Spanish settlements in Araucanía. Lautaro had chosen to give Villagra’s force the slip and head for the city to attack it.Despite the Mapuches’ stealth, the city’s leaders learned of the advance and sent a small expedition to thwart it, buying time for word to be sent to Villagra to return to the city from the south. The Spanish forces met in the field, and from a member of the local ethnos, the Picunche, they learned the disposition of Lautaro’s camp. At dawn, on April 29, 1557 the conquistadors launched a surprise attack from the hills of Caune, obtaining a decisive victory in the Battle of Mataquito in which Lautaro was killed early in the fighting. After the defeat of his army, his head was cut off and displayed in the plaza of Santiago. He was close to final victory when he was killed in battle at around 23 years of age.You can share my stuff!
