Rondônia has about 15,000 indigenous people from more than 50 different ethnic groups scattered throughout the state. Among so many different cultures, one commonplace: the low participation of women in decision-making.
For this, the organization holds meetings in cities and tribes, where women from various groups can share their experiences and decide together the directions of the collective. In addition, they actively participate in demonstrations and councils that discuss public policies.
Today one of the main struggles of AGIR is against mining in indigenous lands. According to the women, mining not only contaminates the rivers and destroys the forest, where food and handicrafts come from, but also carries alcohol, drugs and prostitution to the tribes, increasing internal conflicts. But there are also other problems that threaten indigenous peoples, such as invasions and theft of wood.
