In 1991, Indian women of North, South, and Central America gathered in Lima, Peru with the goal of “reflecting on the situation of the Indian peoples of our continent.”

 

“Abya Yala,” in the language of the Kuna people of Panama and Colombia, means “continent of life.” In 1991, Indian women of South and Central America gathered in Lima, Peru. At this Abya Yala Conference, these daughters of Abya Yala—indigenous women organizing throughout South and Central America, struggling against colonialism, poverty and racism, struggling for a better life—came together with the goal of “reflecting on the situation of the Indian peoples of our continent.” This book is a compilation of the stories of these courageous and determined women, a “call to all the Indian women to build an alliance to struggle for the right of our people for self-determination.”
