When the King of Spain abolished indigenous institutions in Aragon, Catalunya, Valencia and Majorca three centuries ago, he probably did not foresee a time when these indigenous nations would again have the international standing to seek autonomy through devolution of the powers of the newly centralized Spanish state. But as Nationalia reports, that time has come. As these national communities note, sovereignty resides in the people, not the state.

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.
