Chilean Pavilion in the 59th Venice Biennale
Editor’s note: Orundellico, a member of the Yámana native people baptized by his appropriator as Jemmy Button, was kidnapped at the age of 14 by the commander of the Beagle, Lieutenant Robert Fitz Roy (1805-1865) along with three other people whom he transported to Europe as a result of his desire to “civilize and evangelize” them. Part of a colonial social experiment, Orundellico “Jemmy Button” was taken back to his homeland where he died, judicially and politically persecuted, impoverished at the age of 48 on an islet in Wulaia Bay that today bears “his” name given by the colonist appropriator: Button Island.
