TERRITORIO

We think that the territorial problem deserves specific attention and this is what the centrality that the issue has in all the areas in which disputes and define issues related to indigenous peoples refer to it. The same people and their organizations send it to us.

In spite of a long struggle of the native peoples that will be able to consecrate rights from the reform of the Argentine Constitution in 1994, where the pre-existence to the formation of the state of these peoples is recognized, also the right to their traditional lands and those fit and sufficient to guarantee their subsistence. Despite the international treaties recognized by Argentina and an extensive number of national and provincial laws that recognize the rights of indigenous peoples, practically nothing was done to make this regulation effective.

Virtually all organizations and communities of indigenous peoples continue to fight for their territories and understand that without a territorial space is limited or directly impossible to develop these cultures. That is why, working together, we intend to accompany the processes of recovery and development of the territories of indigenous peoples.
