Mapuche woman inspired nation trying to stop dam
CORRECTS SPELLING OF NICOLASA - People carry the casket of Nicolasa Quintreman, a Mapuche Indian leader, during her funeral in Ralco, Chile, Friday, Dec. 27, 2013. The 73-year-old Mapuche Indian leader was found floating Tuesday in a reservoir she spent a decade trying to prevent from being created. Quintreman became a national figure during protests against the construction of a hydroelectric dam on tribal land in the forested mountains of southern Chile. (AP Photo/Victor Salazar, AgenciaUno)
