In Asia, the ancestral lands of many Indigenous Peoples have been cut across national borders. Since anti-terror laws and counter insurgency laws were introduced, Indigenous Peoples have been suspected of being insurgents or terrorists, and have been barred from traveling across borders to visit relatives. There should be no borders for Indigenous Peoples as they have existed in those territories long before these nation States came into being.

Governments or states make use of geographical boundaries to demarcate territories. Political entities come to agreements on which area belongs to whom. In some cases, borders are agreed upon by two countries, and in other cases it may have been suggested by a third party like an international conference.  In many cases, borders are imposed on places, without taking into consideration the people who live in that area. In this program, we speak to Aslak Holmberg from the Sami Council in Finland, who tells us how borders have affected his life, as well as his environment.

There are many issues that Cultural Survival has covered and fought for as an organization over the past 47 years, and these issues include but are not limited to land rights, Indigenous languages, traditional knowledge, self-determination, freedom of expression and so on. One thing that stands out for our Executive Director Galina Angarova, and is very close to her heart, is the topic of The Sacred Feminine. 

"Levantando la voz por la paz y la seguridad en nuestros pueblos y continentes", bajo ese lema se reunieron representantes indígenas de toda Abya Yala en el Encuentro Continental de Mujeres Indígenas de las Américas. Nuestra compañera productora de Radio de Derechos Indígenas Rosario González estuvo allí y entrevistó a una de las participantes Librada Pocaterra de la Organización Indígena Wayuu de Venezuela.

Radio is a powerful medium for celebrating humanity in all its diversity. For Indigenous Peoples in many countries, radio is the most accessible platform to have their say in the languages that they speak and understand. Radio therefore is a fundamental means of communication for Indigenous Peoples to maintain their languages and to exercise and defend their rights. Moreover, radio is a means of ensuring the right to information in all sectors of society.

Radio continues to be the medium of choice for poor and marginalized communities.
Community radios are by the people, for the people and owned by the people. On world radio day, Indigenous Rights Radio celebrates the power of radio.

!14 de enero Día mundial de la radio!

Esta fecha es oportuna para analizar como los gobiernos han avanzado en facilitar frecuencias del espectro radioeléctrico para pueblos Indígenas, tomando en cuenta que se encuentra estipulado como un derecho primordial en los tratados internacionales como la Declaración universal de los derechos humanos y la Declaración de la ONU sobre los derechos de pueblos Indígenas.

En el programa le presentamos de forma breve la situación en el tema de radio comunitaria de Panamá, Guatemala y Bolivia.
