Indigenous Women of the Americas

Methodological and conceptual guidelines to confront situations of multiple discrimination

This document is the result of a process of collective construction by our organizations ; the Council of Indigenous Organizations of Jujuy (Consejo de Organizaciones Aborígenes de Jujuy) ; the National Indigenous Organization of Colombia – Council of Women, Family and Generation (Organización Nacional Indígena de Colombia - Consejería de Mujer, Familia y Generación) ; the Mixe People’s Services (Servicios del Pueblo Mixe), Lawyers for Justice and Human Rights (Abogadas y Abogados para la Justicia y los Derechos Humanos) and Quebec Native Women (Femmes Autochtones du Québec)1 ; carried out as part of a project entitled “Ethnic and Gender Discrimination in the Americas : the Case of Indigenous Women”. Its objectives were : to produce Inter American jurisprudence in favour of indigenous women, to help strengthen them as protagonists of this process and to build a conceptual and methodological framework to combat double discrimination, considering, above all, their own voices and viewpoints.
