Chileans are truly mixed. It is also interesting to add the relevance mostly of Germans, Italians, Croats and Palestinian immigrants that arrived in the country between the middle of XIXth and the beginning of the XXth century specially on some areas of the countryView attachment 13734View attachment 13736
This are two examples of chileans from the XIX century , the first one is 1/4 welsh, 1/4 Northern Italian ( Ligurian) and 50% chilean criolla (mostly Spanish). The second one is mostly chilean upper class from the XIXth century, that is mainly of Iberian descent ( Castilian, Extremadura, Vasc country and Portuguese)
It's very interesting that virtually ALL of them have a few percent of SSA. So, a few have only 3-5% NA, but they have SSA. Doubtless females. Perhaps from very early in the colonization? I didn't know they had very many SSAs in Chile.
The people in the photos seem European. In my university years studying Medicine here in Montevideo, I met several Chileans. Most looked European, and some looked mixed-race. I clarify that they were all upper-middle class.
