Chilean are mainly originating from a mixture between the first Spanish people who came in search of wealth to America and the Indians who inhabited the territory. Initially there were just Spanish immigrants but also between the eighteenth and twenties century, other immigrants from various European countries came to Chile and created the State of Chile.
Early in the history you could say that Chileans were rather reserved in their opinions and did not participated in community activities, whereas in recent years this has changed. There are nowadays demonstrations with a huge student participation in universities and secondary movements for sexual diversity, labour movements, environmental movements and many more.
The official language is Spanish and a significant number speak Mapudungun, the Mapuche language and fewer speak Aymara and Rapa Nui. The Chileans are characterized by fast talking and typically remove the letter “S” at the end of words.
