Indigenous and tribal peoples are often in a numerical minority living under national laws that do not address their specific situations, characteristics and needs. The ILO believes that indigenous peoples need not only their rights as workers and their right to decent work promoted and protected, but also their right to be protected from all forms of exploitation and discrimination. The ILO became involved in the plight of indigenous peoples through its examination of forced labour conditions among so-called ‘native populations’ in colonies in the 1920s – indigenous and tribal peoples were often part of the colonial workforce. The same impulse that gave rise to the ILO’s Forced Labour Convention, led to standards and development work on indigenous and tribal peoples and the adoption of the only two international instruments (then and today) relating exclusively to indigenous and tribal peoples: the

    General Essay on the Religions of Latin America
    The first contingent of humans arrived in North America from Asia during the glacial age which began some 40 thousand years ago. From North America they entered Central America sometime between 13 000 BCE and 7500 BCE spreading from there to South America. Relatively little is known about the inhabitants of Latin America during this period since our knowledge about them is based solely on excavations. However, despite the early arrival of people in Central and South America it was not until 2000 BCE that the first permanent villages showing some kind of social organisation appeared, leading to the formation of high civilisations and social stratification such as the Olmecs that flourished around 1300 BCE or the Mayas that appeared in the first millenium BCE. The settlements in Latin America varied immensely from one place to another. While societies such as the Inca of the Andes and the Maya, Olmec and Aztec of Central America developed a high level of culture, others kept a rather tribal structure. Generalisation about these cultures is, therefore, problematic. In spite of these differences it is possible to identify certain common characteristics in both high civilizations and tribal societies such as animism, a cult of ancestors and continuity between religion and political power. In some societies the mediation between the supernatural and the natural was done through a hierarchically organized body of priests, in other societies a more democratic kind of shamanistic practice was stronger.

    Central America Map Update Indigenous Landscapes In January of this year Native Lands’ new map, Indigenous Peoples and Natural Ecosystems in Central America and Southern Mexico, was completed. It is an update of an earlier map, The Coexistence of Indigenous Peoples and the Natural Environment in Central America, published in 1992. Both maps were collaborative efforts between Native Lands and the National Geographic Society.
    Native Lands has written an in depth analysis of participatory mapping projects in Honduras, Panama, and Bolivia and draws lessons from them. Framed as a narrative case study of these three projects, together with insights from additional projects in Cameroon and Suriname, this book constitutes a practical guide to community mapping with indigenous peoples. 152 pp. with 25 figures, plus 3 bound maps. Published October 2001.

    GENERAL OVERVIEW OF THE INSTITUTE FOR CENTRAL AMERICAN STUDIES (ICAS) BACKGROUND The Institute for Central American Studies (ICAS) is dedicated to the cause of peace, justice and the well-being of the people and land of Central America. ICAS was founded and incorporated in San José, Costa Rica in 1982, exclusively for educational purposes. Such purposes include: acquisition, maintenance and dissemination of reliable information about conditions and developments in Central America; facilitating dialogue about Central America and the issues that affect the region; and conducting study seminars, educational programs and language studies. ICAS has no partisan allegiances or alliances. It is supported solely by subscriptions to its publication, Mesoamerica , by income from educational programs and by contributions from private organizations and individuals. Mesoamerica is published monthly with the goal of furthering understanding of the realities of Central America. Mesoamerica has provided accurate and timely reporting along with thoughtful analysis for the past 17 years. Regular coverage includes economics and politics, as well as the human realities of the people of Central America, all within the perspective of the particular history of each country. INTERNSHIP PROGRAM We believe our internship program gives valuable practical experience in the areas of journalism and Latin American studies, as well as the opportunity to live in a cross-cultural situation. Interns have opportunities to participate in seminars, attend press conferences, lectures and workshops, and take (or audit) university classes.

    Panama: Mining, forests and indigenous peoples' rights The isthmus of Panama stretches in Central America, one of the regions of highest natural and cultural diversity in the world. Different forest ecosystems constitute an essential component of such richness. Several indigenous nations have found in the forests their home and source of livelihoods. In Darién, San Blás and Panamá Oriente live the Emberá-Wounan and the Kuna indigenous people, while the Teribe occupy the area of Bocas del Toro, in the border with Costa Rica, together with the Ngobe-Bugle, who also inhabit part of the provinces of Veraguas and Chiriquí Oriente. According to the 1990 National Census, the indigenous population of Panama is composed of 180,700 individuals, which represents 7.8% of the total population of the country. According to the existing records, since 1850 the forest area has been declining at a high rate. That year forests were estimated to cover 91% of the country’s area, even after having suffered a severe process of deforestation caused by the Spanish colonization, which started in the 16th century. During the 20th century the fall was remarkable. For example, between 1950 and 1960 forest cover diminished from 68% to 58%. According to official estimates, in 1992 the forest area was reduced to 3,358,304 hectares, representing 44% of the country’s area. Nowadays deforestation rate has been estimated in 75,000 hectares a year.

    by Craig Metrick Table of Contents General Information (Where appropriate I have included links to other websites with information on topics discussed here. Some are direct, or as direct as possible, links to organizations or documents while others offer background information or examples of points I have raised. These may not be definitive examples or original information sources but they were chosen because of availability and demonstration of the variety of activities the Corridor encompasses). Approximately 3 million years ago geologic activity, in what is now Panama, parted the ocean to reveal a land bridge between North and South America. The bridge caused dramatic changes in evolution and geography, the effects of which are still being assessed today. The Gulf Stream was created by the separation of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, thereby making the climate in Western Europe much more hospitable. Locally, the event allowed the exchange of plant and animal species between two previously isolated continents. Known as the Great American Faunal Interchange, this period of natural history had enormous influence on the present species composition of North, Central, and South America. Many species of large mammals followed the lush vegetation south from North America. Predators (including humans) soon followed their prey changing the landscape forever. Central and South America, did not have much previous experience with the effects of larger predators and prey on ecosystems. Plants, predators, and prey, were left to evolve together. The result is a series of complex ecosystems, in a delicate balance with their inhabitants and each other, where ~7-8% of the world's species live in just .5% of earth's land area.
