Pope meets with indigenous leaders to discuss rights of their communities

2013-06-24

POPE FRANCIS
-How are you? It has been so long. It's a pleasure. 

-A pleasure. 

-How are you?

-Very well, thank you

The ethnic tribe leader, Felix Diaz, attended the meeting with his wife.  The main purpose was to talk about human right violations faced by indigenous communities in Argentina and other Latin American countries. 

As a pacifist and human rights activist, Esquivel won a Noble Peace Prize back in 1980. During the meeting, he said he was concerned about the rights of indigenous communities, specifically in regards to their land and cultural identity.

"We will continue. From now on, we will work and collaborate in whatever is possible.”

After the Pope blessed Amanda Asijak, she invited him to an event the tribe will take part it. 

"We will hold a march in September.” 

The group is no stranger to the Pope. As the archbishop of Buenos Aires, then Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio had already met these representatives. In fact, like a long time friend, he gave Fr. Francisco Nazar a hug before leaving. Nazar, serves as the vicar of  indigenous populations in the Argentinian Diocese of Formosa.
