Rapa Nui

The indigenous peoples of Rapa Nui continue to face challenges from the government of Chile as well as globalization in the form of capital investment through rampant tourism.

The indigenous peoples of Rapa Nui continue to assert their right of self-determination through the introduction of the organic law legislation. This is a constant dialogue between the political players in Chile national politics, not particularly the indigenous peoples. Indigenous peoples continue to put forward their positions; however, very often the language proposed did not reach the final text considered by the Chilean Congress.
