The native Patagonians and the Welsh settlers


Cover image


The Welsh were not the first inhabitants of Patagonia. For centuries, indigenous tribes had lived on the Patagonian plains, speaking their own language and practising their own customs. Among them were the 'Tehuelche', a nomadic tribe which originated from the area between the River Negro and the Strait of Magellan. It was the Tehuelche who had the most contact with the Welsh settlers during the nineteenth century.
