Project Law in Indigenous Communities
Explain your project in details:
The Project Law in Indigenous Communities that was created from the view that the Indians and their communities have the right to take control of their own institutions and livelihoods, their economic development, and to maintain and strengthen their identities, languages and religions, within the scope of the states where they live, but in the current social situation there are serious violations of indigenous human rights. Reaffirming what ILO Convention 169 says, in various parts of the world, indigenous people can not enjoy basic human rights to the same degree as the rest of the population in the States where they live and their laws, values, customs and perspectives have been eroded often. It was for this reason that the Law in Indigenous Communities was created following the principles of ILO Convention 169, in order to teach lectures on Law and Citizenship, in all its aspects, to the members of indigenous communities and other members of the community in General, with the aim of ensuring that, through indigenous access to the law, the assimilation of their fundamental human rights is guaranteed. The objective of the Project Law in Indigenous Communities is to guarantee to the Indians of Paraná and other indigenous communities of the Brazilian territory, through access to information, the exposure of their rights and duties as citizens, in order to be able to access to justice and other public and private partnerships with greater ease. In this way, the project seeks to help eliminate the social, economic and cultural differences that may exist between indigenous and other members of the national community, especially respecting their aspirations and ways of life, guaranteeing the Indians, through an exposition of the letter of the law, the information of their fundamental rights.

The results achieved by the Law Project in Indigenous Communities are guaranteed to the Indians, under conditions of equality, the rights and opportunities that national legislation grants to other members of the population, respecting their aspirations and life forms.
