Asi que Crotalito no hay ya mucha gente nativa en Argentina. La mayoria de la gente de
Argentina son de Italia y España. A proposito los Españoles mataron todos los nativos de
Cuba como otro ejemplo. Los pocas indigenas que hay en Cuba eran traidos de Mexico
por los Españoles.

De verdad quedan mucha gente indigena en Argentina. El negocio de artisanería india es notable. Se vende ponchos de lana fina (¿alpaca tal vez?) productos rústicos de cuero de alta calidad, figurinas, joyas de plata y cuartzo, zapatos --muchos con deseño auctócono con colores marrón y beis.

Aunque los indigenos son en menoria y sufrieron muchos por la invasion europeo en Argentina (y el resto de las americas), su presencia no se puede pasar por alto.

* from: www.portaldesalta.gov.ar/poncho.htm
Puede estar confeccionada de: lana de oveja, vicuña, guanaco, alpaca o llama y de los hilos industriales, de merino, seda etc. También solía hacerse un poncho de hilo de algodón mezcla con seda, de trama muy ajustada, que servía en los viajes como rompevientos o impermeable.
Some corrections.

Yes, there are still alot:

Wikipedia:


"En Argentina, actualmente según la Encuesta Complementaria de Pueblos Indígenas (ECPI) 2004-2005[9] basada en el Censo Nacional de Población 2001 del INDEC existen 600.329 personas —alrededor del 1,6% de la población total— pertenecientes o descendientes de la primera generación de algún pueblo indígena, según resultados definitivos. Además, el organismo sostiene que, según los resultados, un 2,8% de los hogares argentinos tiene al menos un integrante que se reconoce perteneciente a un pueblo indígena."

Obviously, maybe in that quantity there are many that live in citys like a modern person... but I bealive it's somewhat accurate.

Afro Argentineans or Black Argentineans number about 50,000, nearly all of whom now live in Buenos Aires. Argentina did not import large numbers of slaves, and the Afro-Argentinian population today is descended from freed slaves and slaves who escaped to Argentina from Bolivia, Paraguay, and Brazil. As part of the Europeanization program of the late 1880’s, Afro-Argentineans were pushed off their land. African identity was defined as inferior, and warfare, disease, and intermarriage decimated the population. Although largely ignored and relegated to low-level jobs, the Afro-Argentineans community continues to function as a distinct community in Buenos Aires.
Criticisms of the national census state that data has historically been collected using the category of national origin rather than race in Argentina, leading to undercounting Afro-Argentines and mestizos. The 1887 Buenos Aires census was the last in which blacks were included as a separate category.

When thanks to the people from Spain conquested this wonderful country the ( Indigineas ). They keep as captives in our same country, well and with the cross of the years people origin to here lift to be Mexican and to be most than a mix of every country that arrived to our ground.

Nowadays there're a lot of people from U.S.A here than Spain people, and well, my family are from Spain too, but I don't know, I guess that in others countries there're people from another places like here, for instance, here there're people from Chine, Argentine, Chileans, Americans, inclusive there are people from Africa, also there are people from Canada, I like the idea because you can see the diversity of people walking for there, but in the situation that is confronting our country, I don't believe very nice the diversity even though, I believe that in the word is for everyone and never should exits the borders.

Remember even exist and it always exist the diversity of population.

Viva italia !

oppure come dicono in Italia, viva l´Italia !

No estoy de acuerdo con que se matasen a los nativos, si se lucho en tiempos de guerra es otra historia. Solo basta ver los inmigrantes de Sudamérica en España, el 80 por ciento son indígenas.
