Indigenous Rights and Conservation Program
Tierra Nativa programs are designed by indigenous people to meet their needs and advance towards their collective cultural vision. Ralámuli communities make decisions and plans by consensus in their traditional assemblies. The needs, urgencies, strategies and vision vary in different communities and regions of the Sierra Tarahumara, but respect for their fundamental rights is a universal value.
Tierra Nativa associates offer decades of experience in providing technical and legal services and facilitating and strengthening community self-diagnosis, planning, organizing and action in defense of Tarahumara lands, forests, and the right to free, prior and informed consent.
