20th Anniversary of the
First Continental Encounter of Indigenous Peoples
June 14-16, 2010 Quito, Ecuador

In the summer of 1990, a small delegation of Indigenous Peoples living in the O’Odham territories of Arizona traveled to Quito, Ecuador to participate in the First Continental Encounter of Indigenous Nations, Pueblos and Organizations. There the legend and the prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor was revealed among all our relations gathered around the sacred fire, and to the entire world. At that historic gathering, the trajectory of the continental indigenous movement of Abya Yala was set in motion, which led to the convening of a Second Continental Encounter of Indigenous Nations, Pueblos and Organizations in Temoaya, Mexico in 1993, followed by the First International Indigenous Summit of the Continental Commission of Indigenous Nations and Organizations (CONIC) in the year 2000 held at Teotihuacan, Mexico.

It was Staff keeper Gerald One Feather and the representatives of the Seven Council Fires Dakota Nakota Lakota who in 2000 led the ceremony at Teotihuacan that established the Treaty of Teotihuacan as a mutual commitment at the hemispheric level among the participating Indigenous Nations and Pueblos, an act of collective self definition and self determination in accord with the protocols and principles of jurisprudence of the Nations of Indigenous Peoples of Abya Yala. And over the years since then, the humble Embassy of the Indigenous Peoples, the NAHUACALLI located here in Phoenix has continued the daily work of regenerating the ancestral Continental Confederation of the Eagle and the Condor.

The Second Continental Summit Abya Yala returned to Quito in 2004, followed by the Third Continental Indigenous Summit Abya Yala in 2007 held at Iximche, Guatemala and hosted by the Maya Nations. The IV Continental Indigenous Summit convened in Puno, Peru in May 2009 of 2009, and in 2011 the V Continental Indigenous Summit Abya Yala will gather in Bolivia.

We now approach the twentieth anniversary of the First Continental Indigenous Encounter of Quito 1990, which will occur from June 14-16, 2010 once again in Quito. A moment of collective reflection is upon us as Indigenous Peoples of the continent Abya Yala, and a cycle becomes complete to form a Circle of Purpose that is indomitable, and shall resound on to the future generations of Ixachitecameh, the Nican Tlacah of Ixachitlan: We, the Indigenous Peoples of Abya Yala.

With this in mind and in our hearts, please join us in a community dinner and sharing on Saturday September 18, 2009, as we gather at the NAHUACALLI, Embassy of the Indigenous Peoples to plan for a delegation to travel to Ecuador in June of 2010. Come to make acquaintance, to share and renew our friendships and alliances under the Treaty of Teotihuacan, in the spirit of Self Determination of the Nations of Indigenous Peoples of Abya Yala and the Continental Confederation of the Eagle and the Condor.
