“Men at some times are masters oftheir fates. The fault, dear Brutus is not in our stars, but in ourselves.” If we propose to ourselves strongly to be masters and leaders of our fate, we will have a chance to succeed. If we fail, it will be our own fault, because we make our own decisions, and that influences our future.
Is it inevitable that the minority cultures will, indeed, get smaller or even disappear? No, because of Matambú’s example. At the beginning, the government did not help them, instead they subestimated them, and that made their language and even some of their culture disappear. Later on, when the “Asociacion de Desarrollo de Matambu” began tohelp them out, kids started graduating from schoolsand some went to theUniversity. This provesthat with courage, adviceand help, you can finallysucceed.
Are the inhabitants of Matambú powerless of their fate? No, because now they the opportunity of getting an education. They can graduate from school, high school, and even keep going up to the University. All of it, is their own choice, so they have power over their own fate.
