Indigenous peoples enjoy the human rights and fundamental freedoms enshrined in the Political Constitution, in ILO Convention No. 169 of 1989 (Act No. 21 of 1991) and in other regulatory standards. However, the State has not been able to assimilate the cultural diversity of our country, although Colombia has several obligations aimed at protecting the rights of these peoples and guaranteeing respect for their integrity, which constitutes a challenge for governance, democracy and citizenship. It is essential to take coordinated and systematic action to ensure that those peoples enjoy the rights and opportunities granted to the rest of the population.
