Chilean denomination

This document is quite interesting. It's located in O'Higgins' tomb and dates from 1818, when Chile was declared an independent country. It states that from that day on, all people shall be called Chilean instead of Spanish. It also states that indigenous races shall not be called "bad races" and the originary population shall also be called Chilean. It's really interesting to read this document and have a glimpse of that time...

Interesting. I am glad there is a document about giving people their rightful identity. There are no "bad people".

that's interesting.. It's a shame what history tells sometimes, and what our forefathers did over there... Bad races? that's evil!
