International colloquium on native cultures concludes in Cuba
Havana, Oct 16 (Prensa Latina) Organized by Casa de las Americas from Havana, the International Colloquium of Studies on Native Cultures is concluding its fourth edition on Friday with a keynote speech by Guatemalan columnist Sandra Xinico Batz.
In her debate, the researcher, belonging to the Maya Kaqchikel community, will offer a look to extractivism, considered a systematic tool of racism and the colonization of indigenous peoples.
The dialogue table on the relationship of these communities with the environment and the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic will also take place on Google Meet. These issues have focused the debate since the colloquium began on October 12, Indigenous Resistance Day.
Experts from Bolivia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, the United States, Guatemala, Mexico and Peru, have also exchanged around economic, political and social reality, resistance, worldviews, emancipatory paradigms, critical thinking, activism, leaderships, displacements, art and communication strategies, of indigenous peoples.
Under the central theme 'Indigenous peoples versus extractivisms,' the event marks a continuity since 1959 in the work conducted by Casa de las Americas in disseminating the realities, creations and challenges of these communities in the region.
Due to the impact of the SARS-Cov-2 coronavirus, causing the pandemic, the event has taken place virtually. The papers have been disseminated through videos on the entity's website and participants exchanged on Google Meet and YouTube.
