Abstract

Spanish Abstract: La historia del Estado chileno y su relación con los pueblos indígenas ha estado marcada por el conflicto y la desigualdad. El presente trabajo analiza críticamente la relación entre el derecho penal del Estado chileno y los pueblos originarios, describiendo las distintas perspectivas desde donde se ha perpetuado un modelo que desconoce la existencia de una cultura diferente. Mediante el análisis de jurisprudencia penal de distintos tribunales chilenos, se constata la existencia de un modelo de desigualdad jurídica, que desconoce la existencia de la cultura indígena, restándole valor a sus mecanismos de resolución de conflictos y a la producción de sus propias normas.

English Abstract: The history of Chilean State and its relationship with indigenous peoples has been marked by inequality and conflicts. This paper critically analyses the relationship between Chilean Criminal Law and the indigenous peoples, describing different perspectives that have perpetuated the denial of a different culture. By means of analyzing case law of different Chilean Criminal Courts, the existence of a model of legal inequality is established, model that doesn't recognize the existence of an indigenous culture, undermining worth to its conflict resolution mechanisms and production of own rules.
