Rights Live in All Languages: Promoting Indigenous Rights in Mexico .

Project Success Story | April 30, 2022

This resource provides an overview of the ways in which the RED-DH program partnered with local organizations to recognize the rights of indigenous peoples.

Indigenous Peoples remain among the world’s most marginalized populations and often face systematic exclusion from their nation’s social, economic, and political systems. According to Mexico’s 2020 census, more than 7.3 million people aged three years and older speak one of the country’s 68 indigenous languages, representing six percent of the total population with 25 million people self-identifying as indigenous. Under the USAID-funded human rights program RED-DH, Chemonics has partnered with CSOs to increase engagement with indigenous communities to improve awareness and mechanisms of protections for their human rights.
