close Indigenous Peoples and Poverty: The Cases of Bolivia, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua
Executive summary This paper addresses some of the most pressing issues for indigenous peoples in Latin America. It looks at the poverty situation of indigenous peoples in four poor countries in Latin America - Bolivia, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Despite there being little or no disaggregated data for indigenous women and men in Latin America, it can easily be concluded that indigenous peoples are disproportionately represented among the poor. Governments and donors, however, have judged indigenous peoples to be poor without asking indigenous peoples themselves how they see their situation. It may be that measured within the economic parameters of mainstream society, indigenous peoples are among the poorest but the official Poverty Maps do not necessarily reflect the real poverty situation as perceived by indigenous peoples. In some cases, poverty indicators may even reflect a discriminatory disregard for indigenous values as such, whereby expressions of indigenous identity become an indicator of poverty. Due to the current political marginalization, indigenous peoples are largely absent from the planning, design and implementation of development policies and programmes that directly affect their lives and territories. This study explains some of the impacts of this marginalization and offers a path towards an inclusive system of development.

    This is Common Ground . In Guatemala, 60 percent of the people are descendants of the Mayan Indians. For five centuries, ever since the Spanish conquest, the Mayan people of Guatemala have been discriminated against, their lands taken away, and they've been brutally victimized. Some of the worst repression occurred during Guatemala's 36-year civil war, which ended only in December 1996. TEK ITZEP PASA: (translated) On May 24th of 1980 the army arrived on market day. The army began a massacre that killed 325 people, including children, women and elders. It all happened within an hour-and-a-half. DAVIDSON: The peace accords signed at the end of the war addressed the need to incorporate Guatemala's indigenous people into mainstream society.

    Indigenous peoples and freedom of expression Freedom of expression is a universally recognised right. Article 19 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights states: "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers". The term "freedom of expression" implies the right to information and communication. Such a right is meaningless if one cannot obtain the information needed to form opinions and viewpoints on a subject, just as those opinions and viewpoints will be incomplete without the ability to communicate them to the rest of society. The latter point likewise implies the need to have access to the communication media, especially the mass media such as television, radio and the press. In other words, the right to information, communication and access to the media is fundamental to, and important for, freedom of expression in its fullest sense. The existence of democratic societies and of democratic systems of government is conditional upon those rights, which in their turn, as necessary aids to democratic life, constitute mechanisms that help to bring that life into being and develop it further.

  • Su profunda preocupación e indignación ante el anuncio de repartición de maíz trasgénico en Guatemala como parte del Programa Mundial de Alimentos, y que se viene dando en diversas comunidades del Pueblo Maya, principalmente. Su rechazo absoluto a este tipo de decisiones de países poderosos que imponen por la fuerza no sólo alimentos trasgénicos, sino también todo tipo de flaguicidas y otros, que perjudican la salud de cualquier ser humano en el país. El uso de cualquier producto trasgénico produce enfermedades irreversibles en el Ser Humano. Utilizado en Guatemala solamente agravará la salud de la población quien no tiene recursos para curarse de este tipo de males. Exige a las autoridades de turno a que investiguen de manera urgente la situación de manipulación del hambre y miseria del pueblo por parte de instituciones como el PMA, que se aprovechan de la situación de desconcoimiento que prevalece en la mayoría de nuestras comunidades.

Rigoberta Menchú Tum has devoted her life to the struggle for the rights and well-being of indigenous peoples. In 1992 she won the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of her work in bringing these struggles to the conscience of the international community. That year, she also served as Good Will Ambassador for the International Year of the World's Indigenous People and helped to establish of a United Nations Working Group to address injustices against indigenous people throughout the world. Indigenous Among the many architectural monuments of the Maya are the great pyramids and temples at Tikal. UNESCO photo: Fernando Ainsa Born in Guatemala in 1959, Rigoberta experienced extreme hardship as a result of her Mayan background. She and her family were very poor and worked as seasonal laborers on plantations. They had no rights of citizenship. The Guatemalan government was controlled by people of Spanish descent who had colonized the land.

    In Bolivia and guatemala, indigenous peoples constitute a majorityof the population and a disproportionate percentage of the poor.

    printer friendly version
    Conclusions General conclusions Indigenous peoples' poverty is not a recent phenomenon but has been constructed through historical processes, where indigenous peoples have lost control over their territories and resources due to colonialism and nation-building. This understanding of indigenous peoples' poverty poses two main challenges for poverty reduction strategies:
    • They must start with an indigenous perception of poverty and wealth, otherwise poverty reduction and its promotion of economic growth and uniform indicators of wealth contributes to the undermining of indigenous rights and cultures. They must take a rights-based approach, recognizing indigenous peoples' claim for collective rights as distinct peoples.
    The extent to which this is happening, or is feasible in the short to medium term, differs from country to country. Some of the decisive factors are:
    • The reflection of indigenous rights in national legislation, for example: provisions for bilingual education, political participation and the titling of territories.

    printer friendly version
    Indigenous peoples' experiences with poverty This section is based mainly on the input from the indigenous participants at the MRG workshop in Guatemala, July 2002. Bolivia In Bolivia, official figures estimate that approximately 4.2 million Bolivians (50.6 per cent of the population) are indigenous, compising 37 different indigenous and aboriginal peoples.11 Of these, most live in the Andean highlands. The institutionalized racism in the Andean region has led many indigenous people to internalize this racism and negate their indigenous identity, by changing their indigenous surnames into more 'civilized' ones, or rejecting their indigenous language. This 'whitening' process is well known in Latin America and is synonymous with social and economic elevation. As for education, a separate curriculum was specified for rural populations, building on colonial concepts of the 'civilizing' mission of the state regarding indigenous peoples. Teachers generally reproduced these state concepts, reiterating the idea that indigenous children from the highlands were 'dirty' due to their colour, and that indigenous languages should be replaced with Spanish.12 Indigenous peoples in the history of Bolivia The colonization, which started in 1527, led to the end of the powerful indigenous states in the Andean region and a catastrophic decline in the indigenous population (up to 80 per cent of the population died, mainly due to disease, war and forced labour).13 In pre-colonial times, the

    During Guatemala’s 36-year civil war, at least 200,000 people were killed, while around ten per cent of the population was displaced or forced into exile. Indigenous peoples were the main victims of this violence. Around 150,000 Guatemalans – predominantly indigenous peoples – took refuge in Mexico.
