Indigenous peoples of Colombia hold summit to strengthen unity

Bogota, Jul 27 (Prensa Latina) Indigenous communities of Colombia are holding the Summit of Indigenous Peoples to strengthen unity and secure autonomy of their communities.

The meeting is taking place in the municipality of Silvia Cauca, a territory of ancestral interculturality with the aim of strengthening their processes of struggle and resistance.

“To strengthen the path of unity and autonomy of the native peoples, collectively devising the Colombian indigenous movement’s own agenda, is the main objective of the Summit”, which will last until Friday.

The Regional Indigenous Council of Cauca and six other organizations are participating in an agenda that contains topics to build political guidelines to establish agreements to define the organizational scenario of the indigenous peoples within the framework of unity.

Likewise, the meeting serves to identify the way to face the current political situation and to specify a programmatic agenda for the indigenous peoples of Colombia.

Last week, Gustavo Petro appointed Arhuaca social leader Leonor Zalabata as Colombia’s ambassador to the United Nations.

He also announced that Patricia Tobon, an Embera lawyer and Truth Commissioner, will head the Victims Unit and Giovani Yule, a Nasa sociologist, will direct the Land Restitution Unit.

In this way, the next government of the Historical Pact begins to comply with the participation of the different social sectors that comprise it in the direction of Colombian politics.
