Indigenous Women of the Americas - Methodological and conceptual guidelines to confront situations of multiple discrimination

This document, presents guidelines for working with indigenous women, which were collectively created from experiences in Canada, Mexico, Colombia and Argentina. We hope that our efforts will contribute to the building of a detailed methodology to deal with discrimination against Indigenous Women both when bringing cases to justice and when conducting research.

"Our methodological construction process drew on the experience of organized indigenous women. Each team and each situation took the perspective of indigenous communities into account as well as the experiences of regional and national indigenous and human rights organisations. It was an intercultural and multidisciplinary experience. We worked together to help strengthen awareness of rights among women themselves, documenting instances of discrimination from their own experience and strengthening the capacity of our organisations to facilitate access to justice."
