Tittel: Explaining variation in indigenous mobilisation : a comparative study of the Ecuadorian and Peruvian Andes Forfatter: Fredrikke Storaker Kilander
ISBN til elektronisk utgave: 82-8088-061-5
Persistent URL: Format: Abstract:
This thesis seeks to answer the question of why ethnic identity has served as a basis for mobilisation among the indigenous peoples of the Ecuadorian highlands, but not among the indigenous peoples of highland Peru. Ecuador and Peru can be regarded as similar countries as they share a number of background characteristics. However, during the 1990s Ecuador had the strongest indigenous movement in Latin America, while no national indigenous movement appeared in Peru. In a Latin American context Peru can be seen as a deviant case, as indigenous movements have developed in all of the other countries with large indigenous populations. While ethnic conflict constitutes a challenge to the "new" democracies in Latin America with large indigenous populations, ethnicity and ethnic cleavages in the region remain an understudied topic. My approach to the research question is therefore exploratory. On the basis of a discussion of ethnicity theory, theories of nation-building and modernisation, and social movement theory, I develop three main variables which are operationalised by four indicators each. The variables are: 1) ethnic boundaries and group differences; 2) state- and nation-building policies pursued by the state; and 3) the potential for mobilisation of highland indigenous peoples. The variables provide the headings for the three chapters of the analysis.

Canadian Natives’ expertise sought by indigenous groups
Indigenous groups from Central and South America are looking to the expertise of Canada's Aboriginals to help them develop their business know-how and post-secondary education.
This good-news story might surprise non-indigenous Canadians accustomed to hearing about Natives only in association with residential school lawsuits or in connection with high suicide rates, drug and alcohol addiction and high unemployment.
Representing the Wilp Wilxo'oskwhl Nisga'a in Peru were Deanna Nyce, Irene Seguin and Bertram McKay. Monica McKay (centre) represented the indigenous peoples development subcommittee of the Primate's Fund.
The Nisga'a, who live in British Columbia's Nass River Valley, have signed a partnership agreement with indigenous peoples living near the Amazon River in Peru. They will help the Confederation of Amazon Nationalities of Peru (representing 200,000 people) develop a post-secondary educational program so they can begin exploiting their own natural resources, rather than watch transnational corporations walk away with all the profits.
The Nuu-chah-nulth, who live near Nanaimo, B.C., have signed an agreement with a Mexican indigenous organization. The Nuu-chah-nulth Economic Development Corporation will share their expertise in economic development with the Indigenous Council of the Huastec Region of Veracruz. Indigenous groups there produce some high quality products but lack the markets or know-how to sell them.

Overview Focus: Land Rights in the Amazon River Basin Project: Family Tree Focus: Land Rights in the Amazon River Basin Time and Place The Amazon River Basin is a lush rainforest extending into nine Latin American countries. It holds countless natural resources and is home to over 300 Indigenous Peoples. Many different groups have interests in the Amazon. The governments of Ecuador, Brazil and Peru use the land and resources to increase the income of their countries. Transnational corporations interested in extracting raw materials such as gold, tin, iron, and oil are also claiming land in the region. Many of these claims conflict with the ancestral homelands of Indigenous Peoples. Meanwhile, new contracts bring more industry to the Amazon. People UN/DPI photo: Joseane Daher In the Amazon today, groups like the Kayapo and Waiapi in Brazil, the Yanomami in Brazil and Venezuela, the Quichua and the Shuar in Equador, the Ashaninka in Peru, and the Aymara in Bolivia all face similar struggles in preserving their lands.

Institute of Latin American Studies, University of Liverpool
Dates: 21 – 22 February 2003
The Conference will examine the means by which Latin American indigenous peoples are gaining ground within the neo-liberal state in the context of globalisation. Papers will examine the processes of struggle, dialogue or, in Sarah Radcliffe’s words, ‘entanglement’, between indigenous peoples and the state, over the definition and control of political, institutional, cultural, social, and environmental terrains. To what extent have indigenous peoples been able to influence the definition of these terrains, i.e. to what extent are they ‘gaining ground’? Or, up to what point has the state been able to subvert their claims and preclude meaningful change?
Themes of the Conference: ·Intersections between identity, territoriality and legal rights ·Indigenous peoples and constitutional reform ·Indigenous peoples and human rights ·The culturalisation and/or ethnicisation of politics ·Indigenous people and biodiversity ·Indigenous languages, culture and intercultural education programmes

Human Rights
Politics Debt Women ... Background to the Camisea Gas Project Indigenous Peoples and the Environment in the Peruvian Amazon The government of Alberto Fujimori has made the development of the Amazon a priority in terms of extracting natural resources. The objective is to increase export earnings and inflows of foreign investment. The foreign exchange raised is used primarily to honour the terms that the government has agreed to with creditors for debt repayment. Exploitation inevitably has involved damage both to the delicate ecosystems that characterise this region and to the indigenous inhabitants of the region. Sadly, much of the history of Amazonia, from the rubber boom early this century onwards, has been one of depredation.
The last ten years has seen a wave of investment by transnational firms, many of them keen to tap the region's oil and gas potential. The Fujimori government has done its utmost to attract such investment by liberalising the foreign investment code. Tax exemptions have been granted on the repatriation of profit, as well as exemptions from import duties on equipment. Environmental controls have been eased.
Over 20 corporations have been granted concessions for oil and gas exploration, covering a total area of some 14 million hectares. One of the biggest exploration projects is that of Royal Dutch Shell at Camisea Both for the government and for Shell, Camisea - a US$2.7 billion dollar investment - is a key project. Stung by its poor record in Nigeria, Shell has promised to cater for environmental and human needs in this area of virgin forest. (See below for update on the Camisea Project)

    • Financing development projects which benefit indigenous peoples; Strengthening of borrower institutions and indigenous peoples organizations; and Building a knowledge base on development issues to be shared with all stakeholders.
    Indigenous peoples have historically been the most disadvantaged and excluded populations in many parts of the world. There are more than 200 million indigenous peoples worldwide living in more than seventy countries. They have not only faced discrimination in terms of their basic rights to property, language, culture and citizenship, but also in terms of access to basic services and essential material conditions for a satisfying life. In many countries there exists a high correlation between poverty and being indigenous, and the socio-economic conditions and access to basic social services are significantly worse for the indigenous peoples than for the non-indigenous population.

    October-November 2002 ”[The Camisea region] contains a biological and cultural richness perhaps unparalleled anywhere else in the world.” Report by Conservation International, Global Environment Facility and the World Bank The United States Export-Import Bank is considering a loan application from a consortium of oil companies that is already breaking all the rules. The Camisea Gas Pipeline project is underway in a region of such remarkable biological and cultural diversity that the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) called it “the last place on earth” where anyone should drill for fossil fuels. Led by Pluspetrol, an Argentine company with an appalling environmental track record, the Camisea project is currently penetrating a Peruvian reserve where three nomadic indigenous groups live in voluntary isolation, vulnerable to diseases from which they have no immunity and dependent for their survival on a fragile ecosystem. Outside the reserve dozens more indigenous communities are already experiencing conflicts and contamination generated by the pipeline project. These communities are seeking international support to prevent irreversible harm to the estimated 7,500 indigenous peoples of the Camisea region and to the magnificent tropical rainforest of Peru’s Lower Urubamba Valley. The Camisea Gas consortium, including Hunt Oil of Texas, plans to drill four gas wells, flow lines, a processing plant and two pipelines that will run side-by-side from the Peruvian Amazon across the rugged Vilcabamba mountains to the coast at a total cost of $2.7 billion. Three out of four gas platforms will be built inside the Nahua-Kugapakori Reserve. Peru established this Reserve to protect nomadic bands of Yora, Nanti and Kirineri people from unwanted contact. Seismic testing in the reserve will be completed in November, and construction of the first well is slated for spring 2003.

    Bill Twist recently returned from Ecuador where he was meeting with key players from the government, indigenous, and NGO communities to discuss strategies for the creation of an Ecuadorian "Green Plan" which would permanently protect over 5 million acres of some of the most biologically and culturally diverse rainforest on Earth. This course of action could help to systematically break down the vicious cycle of foreign debt imposed on countries such as Ecuador and provide a strong global example. The Achuar, and the other indigenous groups of Ecuador's pristine Southern Amazon region, are peacefully resisting oil development in their ancestral territories through sound law, powerful alliances, and fierce courage and commitment. To date, this unique campaign is winning, and combined with the vision mentioned above, we are poised on the edge of a tangible and much needed victory for the environment, indigenous cultures, and life itself, that could be instrumental in turning the whole thing around. Bill Twist will discuss how Pachamama is supporting this movement on the grassroots, national, and international levels. An introduction to The Pachamama Alliance will begin the evening at 6:30 pm, followed by dinner (no host) and the presentation.

    Representatives of indigenous peoples from around the world voiced particular and collective grievances in morning and afternoon meetings today, as the Permanent Forum for Indigenous Issues continued its historic first session with an open debate on human rights issues. From Alaska to Baja California to the San Andreas Islands of Colombia, from the Saami region of Scandinavia to Siberia to the Maluccas of Indonesia, and from across Africa and Australia, such representatives spoke of abuses ranging from proscription of traditional languages to usurpation of lands to genocide, while suggesting means for the new Forum to promote their common rights in a draft Declaration and throughout the United Nations system. Representatives of some United Nations Member States were also present to listen and contribute their perspectives. A common theme that ran through the discussion today was that general notions of human rights, as well as existing human rights instruments, could serve as a framework for indigenous rights.

    It was imperative for the financing of the Forum, some speakers said, to come from a stable revenue stream, like the United Nations' regular budget, to assure the smooth operation of the Forum.  The debate came as the Committee wrapped up two days of discussion surrounding the programme of activities of the International Decade of the World's Indigenous People.
    The Forum was created by a resolution of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in 2000.  Its first session is scheduled to take place from 6 to 17 May 2002.

    A special voluntary fund to facilitate indigenous peoples' input in crafting a hemispheric Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples has moved one step closer to becoming reality. At the inauguration of a special meeting at the Organization of American States (OAS) in Washington on Monday Peru's Ambassador, Eduardo Ferrero Costa, announced that he had submitted a draft resolution to establish the special fund to the OAS Working Group mandated to prepare the draft declaration. The Peruvian diplomat chairs that Working Group, which also organized this weeklong meeting. He said the Working Group hopes to give the OAS Permanent Council a "consensus document" as soon as possible, containing proposals emerging from the last meeting of the Working Group, along with any others submitted by representatives of indigenous groups. "The aim is to establish a permanent and secure system affording broad and representative participation by representatives of indigenous peoples in the deliberations toward adoption of the Draft Declaration," declared Ambassador Ferrero Costa.

    Native peoples by the numbers Getting reliable census data can be a problem for targeting support
    Anne Deruyttere, chief of the IDB’s Indigenous Peoples and Community Development Unit
    By Anne Deruyttere How many indigenous peoples are there in Latin America? The answer to this seemingly straightforward question is far from clear, in large measure because of the difficulties in determining who is indigenous and who is not. Is a person’s status determined by ancestry, purity of lineage, adherence to cultural traditions? Or is a person indigenous simply by claiming to be so? How many indigenous peoples are there in the Americas? Even if reliable census data were available, there is still no universally acceptable answer to the question of who is indigenous. This map represents conservative estimates based on national censuses of varying degrees of accuracy and using different criterias It is not an idle question. If a government undertakes a health or education program targeted at indigenous peoples, it must decide which communities to include. In a project to demarcate indigenous territories, it must determine who will have rights to these lands. Over the years, an international consensus on the definition of indigenous peoples has been formed through the preparation of legal instruments by organizations such as the International Labor Organization, the Organization of the American States and the United Nations. These international covenants define indigenous people as the descendants of the original inhabitants of a geographic region prior to colonization who have maintained some or all of their linguistic, cultural and organizational characteristics. An additional criterion is self-identification.

    By Roger Hamilton The IDB began to develop specific policies to address the needs of indigenous peoples in the mid-1980s when it recognized that the projects it financed had potential negative effects on native communities. It subsequently took steps designed to avoid or mitigate these impacts. In the years following, the Bank also began to finance projects specifically designed to foster indigenous development, thus taking a proactive as well as a reactive approach. Most significantly, the Bank enlisted the collaboration of indigenous communities themselves in designing and carrying out development projects in a way that respects their culture and identity. Today, the IDB is seeking to “mainstream” indigenous development by addressing the needs and concerns of native communities in its regular operations. In this way, indigenous peoples will have access to benefits that would formerly have been denied them because of sociocultural factors, prejudice or an urban bias. In its work in indigenous development, the IDB operates within mandate established by its own Board of Governors as well as a number of international agreements and declarations. Principal among these are Convention 169 of the International Labor Organization, which recognizes the aspirations of indigenous peoples to “exercise control over their institutions, ways of life and economic development and to maintain and develop their identities, languages and religions, within the framework of the states in which they live.” Another was the agreement establishing the Indigenous Peoples Fund, and documents on indigenous peoples’ rights under preparation in the United Nations and the Organization of American States.
