The origins of “La Machi”

A long time ago, when the Jesuits arrived to Argentina they had a strategy for approaching the local tribes. In each of them they searched to share the good news with the oldest of the woman in the tribe, who was considered to be the wisest. She was called LA MACHI.

LA MACHI was an expert in communication, through the transmission of art and music with the use of her kuldrún (drum), linking the tribe to all the good news from God and what needed to be communicated.

Thanks to the evangelization and conversion of many of these mystic women to the gospel, the missionary campaigns in South America succeeded. More than 400 years later LA MACHI wants to keep this original spirit intact. Under this foundations LA MACHI wants to consolidate itself as bearer of good news.
