Abya Yala Report from Ecuador: Pachacutic Kundur Anka
First Continental Encounter of Indigenous Peoples
June 14-16, 2010
The Circle of Purpose approaches completion, the Pachacutic Abya Yala is evident, and with the wind of the wings of transformation the spirit of Kundur Anka prepares for a new emergence of the ancient hope of humanity’s regeneration.
When we arrived in 1990 in Quito, the indigenous uprising across the entire county of Ecuador led by the CONAIE was in full expression and millions of Indigenous Peoples were in engaged in direct action movements. Now, twenty years later the cycle completes but the issues that framed the uprising of 1990 in Ecuador have shifted in context to a Battle for the Planet and the Future of Humanity.
Approaching the field of battle, there arises the sense of a spiritual struggle to assert our Self Determination as Nican Tlacah Cemanahuac, Indigenous Peoples of the World in fulfillment of our traditional cultural obligations as guardians of the Pachamama, the xicalli of MotherEarth. In the context of the situation here in Ecuador and the ongoing crisis in the Territories of the Confederation of the Boa, the Amazon territories of Peru, Colombia and Ecuador share a common scenario.
The governments of each of these countries advocate, either from the right or the left of the Euro-American political agenda, for the supremacy and domination of the Divine Right of States as preemptive of the territorial rights of the Indigenous Peoples, in violation of the Universal Human Rights principles expressed in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
The position of Peru, Colombia and Ecuador in terms of territorial rights of Indigenous Peoples prescribe an official version of Human History that is in itself a violation of reality, for being domestic derivatives of the Doctrine of Discovery and the social constructs of political states imposed by force of genocide on the continent Abya Yala.
