Miss Panama 2018 (Ngäbe-Buglé) at the Int'l Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples

Statement by Ms. Rosa Montezuma (Miss Panama 2018) at the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples.
Today’s marking of the International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples aims to highlight the situation of indigenous peoples who have been forced to migrate due to climate change, violence and conflict, or have been displaced by authorities without their consent.
Also at the meeting, Miss Panama 2018, Rosa Montezuma, who belongs to the Ngäbe-Buglé people said, “indigenous people, we migrate. We moved from the country to the city motivated by a wide variety of social phenomena. Sometimes convinced that opportunities are in urban areas, especially for the young, and many other times because we are forced to abandon our communities where social and economic inequities persist.”
