Selk'nam bodypainting (Kataix spirit)    (Scanned from postcard) The Selk'nam or Ona people, and related tribes, were indigenous to inland Tierra del Fuego (and southern mainland Patagonia). They hunted guanaco and other animals. They were wiped out soon after the arrival of white missionaries and ranchers, mainly through disease but many were also hunted/murdered by ranchers whose sheep they stole.
