This is Common Ground . In Guatemala, 60 percent of the people are descendants of the Mayan Indians. For five centuries, ever since the Spanish conquest, the Mayan people of Guatemala have been discriminated against, their lands taken away, and they've been brutally victimized. Some of the worst repression occurred during Guatemala's 36-year civil war, which ended only in December 1996. TEK ITZEP PASA: (translated) On May 24th of 1980 the army arrived on market day. The army began a massacre that killed 325 people, including children, women and elders. It all happened within an hour-and-a-half. DAVIDSON: The peace accords signed at the end of the war addressed the need to incorporate Guatemala's indigenous people into mainstream society.

Who are the world's indigenous peoples?
Indigenous people are called "first peoples", tribal peoples, aboriginals and autochthons. They have a historical continuity with pre-invasion and pre-colonial societies that developed on their territories. They consider themselves distinct from other sectors of society now prevailing in those territorities. There are at least 5,000 indigenous groups made up of 300 million people, that live in more than 70 countries on five continents.

48. Guatemala
Comprehensive Agreement on Human Rights in guatemala (MINUGUA) and the signing ofthe Agreement on Identity and Rights of indigenous peoples are encouraging
During the reporting period, negotiations between the Government of Guatemala and the Unidad Revolucionaria Nacional Guatemalteca (URNG) have continued under the auspices of the United Nations. While advances in the process have been uneven, the establishment of the United Nations Mission for the Verification of Human Rights and of Compliance with the Commitments of the Comprehensive Agreement on Human Rights in Guatemala (MINUGUA) and the signing of the Agreement on Identity and Rights of Indigenous Peoples are encouraging developments. Taking into account progress made during the first half of 1994 as well as Commission on Human Rights resolution 1994/58, I recommended to the General Assembly in my report of 18 August 1994 (A/48/985) the earliest establishment of a human rights verification mission in Guatemala. On 19 September 1994, by resolution 48/267, the Assembly established MINUGUA for an initial period of six months, and I appointed Mr. Leonardo Franco as the Mission's Director. MINUGUA was officially inaugurated in November 1994. With eight regional offices, five subregional offices and an authorized strength of 245 international staff, the Mission represents a significant effort by the United Nations in human rights verification and institution-building. It is also the most tangible result so far of the talks between the Government of Guatemala and URNG. After the signing of five agreements between January and June 1994, the pace of the negotiations slowed down during the last six months of the year. On 28 December 1994, I expressed my concern to the General Assembly and the Security Council and stated that the time-frame originally foreseen for the conclusion of a peace agreement would have to be revised. In addition, I wrote to the parties to ask them to renew their commitment to the process and to indicate the steps they would be prepared to take to allow it to regain momentum.

Rights of Indigenous Peoples Programme
In August 2001, at the UN World Conference Against Racism, Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance in Durban, South Africa, Warren Allmand called for an end to racism against indigenous peoples On the eve of National Aboriginal Day in June 2001, at the Native Friendship Centre in Montreal, he presented Canadian indigenous leaders with a Joint Declaration of Canadian non-indigenous NGO support for the UN Draft Declaration for the rights of indigenous peoples. The Joint Declaration calls on the Canadian government to demonstrate leadership by supporting the UN Draft Declaration, which explicitly recognizes the right of self-determination, and urging other governments to do the same.
This past year, the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Programme implemented 16 projects for a total of $353,928.

Indigenous Peoples' Rights
By Chief Abel Bosum, Ouje-Bougoumou Cree Nation, at Kennedy Library, Boston MA, 10 December 1994
We like to think of the UN as a world government that is responsible for a kind of universal sovereignty laws that transcend the jurisdictions of individual States, or perhaps, law that cannot be entrusted to the single responsibility of individual States. In fact, if we examine the history of the UN, it is obvious that it was founded to establish and enforce a higher standard of ethical and moral behavior than individual States may practice. We all know that the establishment of the UN in San Francisco directly at the end of the Second World War, was in reaction to the horrors of the Nazi regime. The founding principle of the UN is that States do not have ultimate sovereignty with regard to the basic human rights and fundamental freedoms of their inhabitants; that this ultimate sovereignty is surrendered to the world body, and that although each State retains the responsibility to uphold and enforce human rights law, all States are subject to international oversight in this regard, and if necessary, international intervention. The speeches that were made at the founding of the UN note that the need for the world to act in solidarity against Hitler's Germany was this same principle of world solidarity that was applied to the apartheid regime in South Africa, resulting in the very positive developments that have occurred there recently. Of course there was no UN when Columbus landed in the so-called

Reaching Indigenous Youth with
Reproductive Health Information and Services
February 1999 The terms "indigenous peoples," "indigenous ethnic minorities," "tribal groups," and "scheduled tribes," describe social groups with a social and cultural identity distinct from the dominant society that makes them vulnerable to being disadvantaged in the development process. World Bank, 19911 Why Focus on the Indigenous? Indigenous people are found throughout the world. The United Nations estimates that more than 300 million indigenous people live in more than 70 countries. Most indigenous groups share the demographic profile of developing countries where youth, defined as those aged 10 to 24 years, comprise the largest segment of the population. In addition, these groups tend to be poor, rural, and left out of the process of economic development. Although there are vast differences among indigenous peoples, all have a traditional culture that is distinct from the national culture of their country; some may identify with an ethnic group with ties to an historical homeland. What Are the Special Challenges in Working with Indigenous Youth?

Indigenous Women Are Being Marginalized
Indigenous Women Are Being Marginalized at the Beijing Conference by Rosa Rojas "It's a fact that the immense majority of the organizations that planned the Beijing World Congress (on Women) have marginalized indigenous women," claimed the Nobel Peace Prize laureate Rigoberta Menchu, who estimated that because of this, "indigenous women will not be taken into account in the women's agenda." In an interview with La Jornada, she warned that she will participate "with reservations" at the invitation of the UNESCO Director Federico Mayor in an event during which, in the company of some First Ladies and other personalities, a call will be made today (Monday, September 4) for a full and decentralized education for women at this end of the millennium. Nevertheless, she underlined, "I don't represent anyone...I don't think that because of my participation, indigenous women have participated" or been given a "worthy place" in the preparatory meetings for Beijing. She refered to the fact that she, like other indigenous women, exhorted that this situation be corrected, especially at the Mar de Plata Conference of 1994, when "I made a call, a petition, and thought that it was understood I didn't want to participate in the Mar de la Plata meeting because I thought the absence of indigenous women could not be justified just because Rigoberta Menchu participated and gave a message."

"What I treasure most in life is being able to dream. During my most difficult moments and complex situations I have been able to dream of a more beautiful future." Ois Botik "The time has come for dawn, for work to be completed, for those who nourish and sustain us to appear, the enlightened sons, the civilized people; the time has come for the appearance of humanity on the surface of the Earth." Pop Wuj "What hurts Indians most is our costumes are considered beautiful, but it's as if the person wearing them didn't exist." During the 1970s and 1980s in Guatemala, tensions between the descendants of European immigrants and the native Indian population increased. In 1981, because of her activism, she had to leave Guatemala and flee to Mexico, where she organized peasants' resistance movements and was co-founder of the United Representation of the Guatemalan Opposition (RUOG).

Recommendations VI. Other recommendations to promote peace and national harmony The CEH believes that for the promotion of peace and national harmony it is necessary to know and face the causes of the armed confrontation and its consequences, in such a way as to put an end to the social, ethnic and cultural divisions in Guatemala. Equally necessary, are social participation and the contribution of all Guatemalans without discrimination in the fulfilment of public duties. Although the CEH’s Report should serve as a fundamental reference point in the investigation of Guatemala’s past, it does not in itself bring to a close the investigation and analysis that must be carried out regarding the armed confrontation, its causes, the extent of the violence and its effects. The Report of the CEH should serve as a platform for continuing investigation within Guatemala. On this basis, the CEH recommends: Investigation and analysis of the past That the Guatemalan people continue the investigation and analysis of the events of the past, so as to construct firm foundations for the future based on their knowledge of the past, and thereby avert a repetition of the mistakes that provoked the confrontation.
