The Central American Indigenous Community Media Alliance promotes Indigenous people’s voices in the media. The Alliance is composed of three organizations: Cultural Survival; EntreMundos; and the Central American Network of Indigenous Community Radio Stations and represents more than 60 radio stations in the seven Central American countries. Together, the Alliance fosters alternative, independent and Indigenous-controlled media, contributing to building democracies and providing relevant and accurate information to the public.
The objectives of the Alliance are to:
- Investigate and research issues that affect Indigenous Peoples.
- Present Indigenous perspectives, news analysis, and stories that represent Central America’s cultural diversity.
- Communicate and raise awareness of Indigenous Indigenous Peoples’ rights and concerns.
The Alliance has organized three calls for article submissions and has selected the following articles by Indigenous authors to publish:
