The document reproduced here is a photographic copy ofthe only printed version of the Tapihue Treaty, signed on January 7, 1825, by the patriot army colonel and commander in chiefofthe High Frontier, Pedro Barnechea, representing the Government ofChile and the principal chiefofthe alliance "llanista" Juan Mariluán,. It was the first ofseveral peace agreement sheld between the republic and the various lineages Mapuche groups after independence. While the content of the treaty has circulated before, a visual reproduction of the original form after being published by order ofCongress, in the workshops ofthe National Printing Office, Santiago de Chile, was not available. It is therefore a reliable picture of the "official" sponsored by the Chilean legislature. It is preceded by a presentation that explains the history surrounding its release, rediscovery and technical analysis. Likewise, this presentation provides comments relevant to the legal scope, anthropological and political content. It makes a special reflection on the political status acquired through the territory ofAraucania, one of the themes of this work, derivedfrom Fondecytproject on the development ofthe Mapuche society at the beginnings ofthe Chilean republic.
