There exist different explanations about the origins of the name "Chile." The most accepted one is that it is derived from the native Aymará word chilli meaning "the land where the earth ends." Chile is considered to be one of the most homogeneous nations of Latin America in both ethnic and cultural terms.In contrast to many other Latin American nations, Chile has not experienced the emergence of strong regionalism or conflicting regional cultural identities.To the south, the cold waters of the Drake Sea announce the nearness of Antarctica.To the west, Chile looks at endless masses of the South Pacific water.
Most Chileans (84 percent) reside in urban areas, while the rest live in an increasingly urbanized rural environment.In the northern provinces near Bolivia, Aymará Indians have been able to preserve many aspects of their Andean culture.In the southern region the Mapuche Indians are a large cultural group who strongly contributed to the formation of Chilean culture.To the north the arid Atacama Desert separates it from Peru.The high Andes peaks constitute its natural frontier with Bolivia and Argentina.
