Chileans wait for receive mapuche medicine next to a Ruca, a thatched-roof building in Temuco. 
Chileans wait for receive herbal medicine next to a "ruca", a thatched-roof building where the "machi," or shaman, sees patients in the La Pintana neighborhood of Santiago, in this picture taken on October 14, 2004. Chile's machis, who acquire healing abilities through dreams or visions, are the central figures in a spiritual revival that began among the urban population of Mapuche Indians and has now spread to Chileans of non-Indian descent, fed up with an over stretched public health system. Their holistic approach to medicine has become so popular that the Chilean government and the Inter-American Development Bank are funding a $2 million initiative to revive the Mapuche health practices.
