Pope’s Chile-Peru Trip to Include Focus on Indigenous People

Pope Francis’ weeklong visit to Chile and Peru in January is expected to include a focus on issues affecting indigenous people.

 

The Vatican on Monday released the itinerary for the Jan. 15-22 trip, which will be the pope’s 21st foreign visit and his fifth to his home continent.

 

The schedule includes a day devoted to the Amazon as well as a visit to a southern Chilean region claimed by the indigenous Mapuche community.

 

The trip also is likely to cover other issues important to Francis — poverty, migration and the environment. And it will feature protocol visits, speeches to bishops and meetings with local Jesuits.

 

It also could create tension. Vandals burned a bus and scattered pamphlets last week to protest Francis’ Jan. 17 visit to the region claimed by the Mapuche as ancestral territory.
