Who are we?

Debates Indígenas (Indigenous Debates) is a digital magazine which aims to address the struggles, achievements and issues of the indigenous peoples in a perspective from within the territories and the communities themselves, with academic knowledge and activist engagement. Our vision is to become a communications medium of reference for indigenous peoples, as well as an instrument that contributes to the defence of human rights and nature.


IWGIA is a global human rights organization dedicated to promoting, protecting, and defending the rights of indigenous peoples. To achieve this, it documents and monitors the situation of indigenous peoples worldwide. Its engine of transformation lies in documentation, advocacy, and local work.


Oré, in Guaraní, means “ours.” It is an international working group formed in 2010, specializing in the defense and implementation of the human rights of indigenous peoples through technical assistance to indigenous organizations and social communication.
