RLC Campus Córdoba is offering an open seminar with indigenous peoples of Argentina.
The seminar will be developed with Mbya Guarani indigenous people and institutional partners in Misiones province, Argentina. The title of the seminar alludes to biased “independence dates” commemorated by former colonial countries in Latin America –in this case Argentina: “Independence: For whom?” In most of the cases, indigenous peoples of the region suffer expulsion from their lands, discrimination and scarce access to health systems.
Further information on the contents of the seminar can be found here.
