Ligna presented a perspective on the Colombian conflict seldomly heard in the United States mass media, and informed the audience of the struggles that the indigenous populations of the Cauca region have endured in order to maintain and affirm their autonomy and self-organization against the militarization of their territories by the Army and the FARC Guerrillas.
