Leaders of Sarayaku: Connecting Indigenous Roots, Session II, a LASP-CUSLAR Public Issues Forum

Wednesday, February 24, 2021 at 12:15pm to 1:15pm

Virtual Event

This is a second time during 24 February to meet the leaders if you couldn't make the 11am session. Sarayaku’s Kichwa communities were central to Ecuador’s first National Indigenous Uprising in 1990 and are at the forefront of indigenous rights mobilization. Come listen to four leaders from Sarayaku's indigenous communities (Abigail Gualinga, Mario Santi, Yaku Viteri, and Fausto Santi) and learn more about indigenous cosmologies & human rights frameworks.

This event is co-sponsored by Cornell University Latin American Studies Program with funding from a Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Language (UISFL) grant from the U.S. Department of Education, the Committee on US Latin American Relations (CUSLAR) at Cornell, the Cornell Law School, the American Indian and Indigenous Studies (AIIS) program at Cornell, and with a partial funding from the Cornell Student Activities Funding Committee (SAFC)
