Other topics to discuss will be those related to the strengthening of indigenous policy, human rights and the implementation of the Peace Agreement.

The 1991 Constitution recognizes the ethnic multiplicity of the country and allows indigenous communities to participate in the public and political life of Colombia, allowing their entry into the Colombian Congress.

However, these populations continue to suffer from stigmatization, segregation and racism, despite the rights contemplated in the current Magna Carta.

Colombia has 102 indigenous communities, among which the Wayú people, the Embera Chocó, the Guambino peoples and the Amazonian Ticuna and Nukak Maku people stand out, among others.
