Summary: one of the last surviving members of the nomadic Kaweskar tribe that once plied the waters off Chile's Patagonian coast, in which experts estimate that only about a dozen full-blooded Kaweskars (or Alacalufes) survive and the group appears destined to disappear in the near future because there are no women of fertile age left.
