We examine the concept Multicultural Education in the educational researches in Chile. A review combining critical mapping and semantic analysis of articles identified the main communities and approaches in multicultural education for the last 10 years. The results show the prevalence of researches about indigenous communities and approaches focused on human relationships as well as the recognition and maintenance of sociocultural identities. The discussion raises awareness on the need to expand the research into other culturally diverse communities, to include a perspective of social justice to address the school inequalities. Finally, it encourages the development of applied, transforming and groUnded educational research.
