Indigenous Peoples and Poverty: The Cases of Bolivia, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua
16pp, ISBN 1 904584 01 2
This paper addresses some of the most pressing issues for indigenous peoples in Latin America. It looks at the poverty situation of indigenous peoples in four poor countries in Latin America – Bolivia, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Despite there being little or no disaggregated data for indigenous women and men in Latin America, it can easily be concluded that indigenous peoples are disproportionately represented among the poor.
