An earlier synthesis report released in June 2017 shattered the myth that Indigenous and Afro-Descendant Peoples in Colombia are in conflict. Instead, it underscored how inter-cultural dialogue and sharing of territorial defense strategies can lead to productive, concrete actions that contribute towards uniting peoples, upholding rights, and forging peace in Colombia.
“Juntando Fuerzas, Tejiendo Estrategias I” and “Juntando Fuerzas, Tejiendo Estrategias II” are videos produced by the Resguardo Indígena Cañamomo Lomaprieta documenting the territorial struggles—particularly around extractives—faced by the Embera Chamí Indigenous people from 2015-2017. Videos in Spanish only.
This project was funded by the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and the Embassy of Norway in Colombia.
