As part of Canada’s commitment to advance the rights of Indigenous peoples around the world through its bilateral, multilateral and regional collaboration, the Embassy of Canada in Mexico has been organizing since 2021 a series of roundtables with the participation of civil society and representatives from academia and the governments of Mexico and Canada. These dialogues offer a unique opportunity to strengthen cooperation on Indigenous affairs in North America and beyond, amplifying Indigenous voices and promoting exchanges on cultural, socioeconomic and political issues.
With the goal of promoting regional dialogue in the Americas, we have partnered with the Canadian Embassies in Ecuador, Guatemala, Panama and Peru to co-organize the first regional roundtable in the framework of the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples (August 9, 2022). The purpose of this roundtable is to facilitate an exchange of experiences, perspectives, lessons learned and recommendations regarding the role of Indigenous women in the protection and promotion of Indigenous languages and culture.
