The statue stands on a headland at the end of the main beach of Puerto Madryn and is a stop on many organised tours. Good view back to town and the cruise ship port.
Patagonia was inhabited by the indigenous Tehuelche, the subject of the sculpture. The monument commemorates the special relationship between the indigenous people and the Welsh settlers who first landed on the nearby beach in 1865. The peoples helped each other, a very different relationship to that of other settler groups who persecuted the Tehuelche.

Set at the far end of the bay this statue is a monument to the Patagonian Indians who helped the Welsh when they first arrived. Good monument and on a great setting, good views all round. It really needs more information boards

We came across this statue when we did a long walk along the coast from where our cruise ship had docked. There are a number of monuments and statues along the way, this is probably the most impressive. I think it pictures one of the local Patagonians and he certainly is an imposing figure. We learnt that the locals aided a number of settlers from Wales, sheep farmers I think, who left Great Britain to make new lives for themselves here. This statue makes a good photograph and is one of the highlights on our walking tour.

Stopped here for a photo opportunity while on the land train tour. was interesting to hear about the Welsh connection in this area and the help given by the local people hence the statue. A good place to stop for photos of the statue and thee area.

During our tour we stopped for a quick photo opportunity. It is dedicated to the Patagonian Indians who helped the Welsh Pioneers when they arrived here.

This is one of those 5 - 10 minute stops for a quick picture and maybe an overview of the area. We cert6 would not put it as a go to must stop but if you are driving by OK for a quick stop.

A great spot to stop and take a picture of the bay and the monument to the local Patagonian Indians who helped the original Welsh settlers of the Valdes peninsula.

Just another statue. It is around the bay. I guess it is meaningful for the people, but to us no big deal.

In the early 1800s the pampas and Patagonia were desolate lands inhabited by the indigenous Tehuelche. Argentina wanted to claim the land before Chile could, and under Julio Roca mass genocide of over 15,000 was committed. The intent was to clear the land in order to establish colonies and farming.

Meanwhile, the Welsh were feeling persecuted and emigrated in order to preserve their language and culture. They fled to Patagonia in 1865 where they were welcomed. (Some towns have retained the Welsh culture today....Puerto Madryn, Gaiman.) The persecuted Tehuelche helped the Welsh get established and they maintained a good relationship. This simple statue is to commemorate that critical relationship.

The statue sits at a great vantage point for nice views and photo ops.

We had the luck that our tour guide Juan Carlos of All Peninsula Valdes was a wildlife freak and he has native Indian roots. So we were told a lot of the background of the Indian life before and now.
