August was a busy month! In the beginning of the month, we hosted our third Latin American Seminar on Indigenous Legal Defense in Peru. This seminar brings together indigenous lawyers and legal advocates from places and contexts across Latin America: Embera, U’wa, and Kankuamo from Colombia, Quechuas, Aymaras, Wampis from Peru, Siona from Ecuador, Mapuche from Chile, and more. Together, they learn and gain skills from each other and other experts in the field. In this exercise the participants identified the most common challenges in their countries, such as the criminalization of earth rights defenders, the lack of prior consultation regarding decisions that affect them, the lack of recognition of their ancestral territories, the negation of their worldview and cosmovision, environmental pollution, violence against indigenous women, and many more.
