My name is Elcira Hernández Walton, I am a Yaghan artisan.
I was born in 1958 in Kanakus, Hoste Island, in the middle of the southernmost archipelago, next to Cape Horn. I lived there with my family until I was 20 years old, rowing and sailing through these channels. Then I moved to Puerto Williams, to work and start my own family. Here I have been able to continue making handicrafts, especially basketry, which I sell to interested people and tourists, at the same time as developing other activities.
