We fight for the self-determination of our bodies, territories and peoples. Our ancestry gives us power and wisdom. Our love for life calls us to struggle. In 2013, some of us sisters began to travel around Argentina with the idea of creating what is today the Movement of Indigenous Women and Diversities for Good Living. We went in search of making visible what they try to make invisible: our bodies-territory, our cosmovisions, our identities and our rights as women and indigenous diversities. With the support of women from the more than 36 pre-existing nations that cohabit the Argentinean territory, we have organised ourselves in this space.
