By BBN Staff: On Wednesday, the Toledo Maya Cultural Council issued a statement saying that it endorses the appointment of Gregory Juan Ch’oc as the Commissioner of Indigenous Peoples Affairs.
“As one of the signatories of the Ten Points of Agreement in 2000, a ground breaking document that recognized Maya Land Rights, the appointment of Commissioner Ch’oc, assures us once more, we will make meaningful strides in the delivery of the Government obligations to its indigenous people, in general, and to the implementation of the Consent Order of 2015, in particular,” the council noted.
The council says that it looks forward to working with the Commission of Indigenous Peoples Affairs and the government of Belize to ensure that full engagement of all members of communities through the consistent application of the principle of Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) in southern Belize is achieved.
