This animation is based on a speech argentine historian Osvaldo Bayer gave, which is also used as an introduction to the song (which is used in the video) "El vindicador" By Arbolito, a band which takes the name of "Arbolito" (little tree) who's a real person) as their name.
Bayer tells the story of how Nicasio Maciel (Arbolito) fought against Prussian colonel Rauch during the dessert campaigns.
Before watching, read so as to understand.
1) Arbolito= little tree.
2) Dessert campaigns: Campaigns which took place during the XIX century in Argentina in orther to exterminate the indians.
3) Boleadora: A weapon which consists on 2 or more rock balls conected by leather strips used to tackle animals.
4) The violet soldiers are not kids. They are adult Criollos. Ranqueles where THAT tall, and yes, there are records of spanish soldiers riding on Incas like horses until they died, so they rode over several once the previous one died. (and that's the least fucked up thing they did)
The tree, however, was my fault.
