Huncal, a place in the province of Neuquén, Argentina where the Mapuche community called
Millain Currical is found.
A primary school founded in 1911 from which no one graduated for more than seventy years.
In 1986, as a result of the “Transhumant school” project, the first class graduated.
A project that accompanies the community in their annual migration for the purpose
of finding fresh pastures for their goats and sheep.
A school that becomes a meeting ground for different ways of perceiving reality; world views
that are in conflict, that complement each other and that are conducive to thinking about
education in our times.
