Let’s Listen to Stories from the Chaco

Chaco Central. The alternative media outlet El Otro País (The Other Country) made a series of publications about indigenous peoples and the significance of the role of women in the fight for their territories and the preservation of their language in two communities: El Estribo and Abisai.

The cases are presented in a series of narrative chronicles accompanied by podcasts and short reel-type videos on social media. The materials recount stories linked to the defence of environmental rights in the face of climate change from the perspective of native cultures.

The following women are the protagonists of the stories: Lina López Gómez, leader of the Palo Santo community of the Enxet Sur Town of El Estribo in Irala Fernández and Cintia Davalos, leader of the Abisai community of the Manjui town in Mariscal Estigarribia.

Below are links to access the reports (in Spanish):
