This episode of Terra Verde features an interview with Denali DeGraf, a writer based in the Argentine Patagonia. Denali’s reporting has been featured in the Earth Island Journal and in Mongabay. Recently he has written about expanding monoculture exotic species tree plantations, increasing wildfire risk, and the efforts of indigenous Mapuche communities in the Southern Andes of Argentina to recover stolen lands. In describing current events in Patagonia Denali provides insights and comparative perspective that are relevant to the growing Land Back campaigns in North America. The interview offers an English speaking audience an opportunity to learn about the international political significance of the growth in cultural identify and the assertion of territorial rights by an increasingly unified Mapuche indigenous social movement.
