We promote respect for indigenous autonomy in the Sierra Tarahumara region through the dissemination and defense of human rights. We denounce racism in Mexico as the source of the historical dispossession of the country's indigenous peoples


Why is it important to work for autonomy and indigenous rights in the Tarahumara region? 

Historically, Mexico’s indigenous peoples, including the Rarámuri who live in the Sierra Tarahumara*, have been marginalized and dispossessed.

In the Tarahumara region, as in other places, racism towards indigenous peoples includes the systematic violation of their basic rights in terms of health, justice and respect for their social, economic and political organization systems. Racism is also present through the destruction and dispossession of their land and natural resources. There has been a considerable increase in the application of neoliberal policies and projects sheltered by limited, permissive and ambiguous rights. 

* The Sierra Tarahumara, also known as the Copper Canyon, is a group of six distinct canyons in the Sierra Madre Occidental in the southwestern part of the state of Chihuahua in northwestern Mexico.
