Toolkit on the Inter-American human rights system for indigenous women
This Toolkit, which contains a series of Information Notes explaining different aspects of the Inter-American system, is designed to help indigenous women and their advocates to use the system effectively. It is the result of a collective effort by indigenous women from, among other countries, Argentina, Costa Rica, Chile, Canada, Colombia, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama and Paraguay. They have worked together for many years to raise awareness about the opportunities offered by the Inter-American human rights system with regard to the rights of indigenous women. Between 2011 and 2014, Forest Peoples Programme, with the financial support of Oxfam Novib, worked with indigenous women from the above-mentioned countries to create this training resource, which can in the future be updated and further developed by indigenous women and indigenous peoples organisations.
