Abstract Note

The Colombian constitution granted all indigenous territories legal status as “Territorial
Entities" within the republic. The Indigenous movement's triumph during the constitutional
convention is particularly important since it makes Colombia the first country to have recognized all indigenous communities territorial rights, rather than selectively granting rights to
certain peoples.
