An "autonomous organization of a plurinational and multilingual character whose work axis is the dialogues of knowledge between the academic world and the indigenous world."
Mission and Purpose
The Weaving of Indigenous Professionals is a network created in July 2018 by the initiative of Argentine citizens belonging to indigenous peoples.
Origins and Development
Organizational Structure, Membership, and Funding
Specializations, Methods and Tools
One of the main challenges within the network has been the possibility of having face-to-face meetings, due to the great extension of Argentina's geography. Its work strategies have been based on the use of information and communication technologies, sharing work material online, and implementing virtual sessions. After each meeting, members socialize agreements with their grassroots community or organization.
Major Projects and Events
The National Population and Housing Census 2020 is a process of great importance for indigenous peoples, since its results are the baseline for the formulation of public policies that could benefit indigenous territories in the decade 2020-2030. For the Weaving of Indigenous Professionals, the correct quantification of the population is a prerequisite for the exercise of autonomy in indigenous territories, since the population criterion is the basis for guarantees regarding their own education, health, and medicine, as well as for alternative production models and access to natural resources. In this sense, the adequate identification of the population in each of the indigenous territories is the basis for the exercise of territorial and linguistic rights.
Analysis and Lessons Learned
Only members who have been able to pay for their trips to Buenos Aires have been able to attend the consultation meetings with the authorities of the National Institute of Statistics and Census. The National Census of Population and Housing 2020 is a very important process for indigenous peoples, as its results are the baseline for the formulation of public policies that could benefit indigenous territories in the decade 2020-2030.
