Parliament of Tapihue (1825)

The Parliament of Tapihue of 1825 was a diplomatic agreement between fourteen Mapuche reductions and the newly established Republic of Chile.[1]: 180 : 184–185  The Mapuche reductions were represented by the lonko Juan Mariluán and the republic by Colonel Pedro Barnachea.[1]: 169 [2] The agreement was aimed to end the Guerra a muerte conflict that had grown out from the Chilean War of Independence.[2] It was also a means for the Chilean government to establish relations with Mapuches.[2]

The parliament did not prosper for a long time, since Mariluán himself rebelled against Chile in the fall of 1826, contravening several of the provisions of the agreement.[1]: 185
