Curiosidades de América Latina
Chile: Día de la Raza (Columbus Day)
- Anika3, CNN iReport producer
Myself and a friend of mine went to watch the Columbus Day parade here in Santiago..
Colloquially known here as Día de la Raza ("Race Day").
Formally known as "Aniversario del Descubrimiento de América".
In the last photo people stomped on the Chilean Flag in
protest against the "Winka" oppression.
Winkas are the non-aboriginal people of Chile....
