Fundación Alianza Ceibo in collaboration with Cabildo Siona de Buenavista

$12,500 to support a Siona community in the Colombian Amazon to defend their rights and fortify their community land patrols to defend their territory against illegal incursions by extractive interests and armed actors. Supported activities include: ongoing activities by the Indigenous Guard program, including land patrols and training for young rangers; skill and information sharing gatherings between Siona and other community land patrols across the region; accompaniment and support for Siona leadership in the community of Buenavista; legal strategies to defend Siona rights and lands, including advancing a pending case before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR); and land titling efforts to secure over 7,000 acres of ancestral territory.
