As every year since 1983, International Day of Indigenous Women is celebrated today to pay homage to those who gave their lives for their families and fought against discrimination because of their gender, social class and ethnic group status.
According to the site gloobal.net, on September 5 this celebration is held, instituted during the Second Meeting of Organizations and Movements of America in Tihuanacu, Bolivia.
On that day in 1782, Bartolina Sisa, a Quechua woman murdered by the royalist forces during the anti-colonial rebellion of Tupaj Katari in Upper Peru, was assassinated, a substitute for the great rebellion . . .
