The Provincial Council of Indigenous Affairs (CPAI) of the Undersecretariat of Human Rights of the province of Buenos Aires signed the recognition act with a vindicative nature.

The undersecretary of Human Rights, Matías Moreno, pointed out that legal entities “give them the possibility of the State recognizing them as such, so that they can make demands and advance in the different projects they have as communities.”

According to national media, the Argentine capital is home to 18 indigenous peoples, 118 communities and at least 500,000 people who identify as indigenous.

"Many times in the history of our country and our region, the State was terrorist and murderous, it persecuted the popular majority. We can see this from the formation of the Nation States, when the native peoples were exterminated, in large part of the 20th century and in the last civil-military dictatorship," Moreno added.

In this framework, the official stressed that the fundamental pillar of local identity has its roots in the original cultures, while emphasizing that the language, culture, physical appearance and the national will to defend the identity of these groups come from them.

Although the Provincial Registry of Indigenous Communities (REPROCI) was inactive between 2020 and mid-2021 during the Covid-19 pandemic, the CPAI experienced a two-fold increase in the granting of legal status compared to previous periods.
