Demanding Our Rightful Place at the Table


Another radical message that we bring here is that in this week of many participations in spaces, we see that Indigenous Peoples are still not yet at the debate and negotiation tables, where States and countries decide, we are still on the margins. The radical message we leave here is that it is important that Indigenous Peoples are actually part of this dialogue and decision-making table. 

Indigenous Peoples continue to face exclusion from decision-making processes.
