    Most of Argentina's indigenous community was wiped out by war and disease by the end of the 19th century.

    Those who survived say they have been pushed to marginal land in forgotten corners of the country.

    Now the community is marching to fight for a share of what they say belongs to them.

    Al Jazeera's Daniel Schweimler reports from Viedma, southern Argentina.
