A selection of early 20th century photographs of Fuegians (Alacaluf, Yámanas, Selk'nam, and Aonikenk ethnic communities) from the holdings of the Chilean Museum of Pre-Columbian Art. "The photographs are distressing, captured by diverse missionaries they offer a look of the children of the End of the World, already in decadence in an accelerated process of extinction. Of the eleven thousand habitants in the Patagonia before the arrival of the Europeans, only a few hundred were immortalized through these images at the beginning of the century"-P. [2].
