The Spanish Empire once ruled many indigenous nations. Over time, those nations came to be ruled by post-colonial successor states, whom many indigenous nations are now challenging to abide by international law. But within the modern state of Spain itself, there are two indigenous nations still seeking independence: Catalonia and Euskadi (Basque Country). As the most economically prosperous regions of Spain — each with its own language — these two indigenous nations of the Iberian Peninsula might soon join Portugal in achieving full independence from Spain.

We're fighting for our lives

Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
