In Colombia, an indigenous governor from the southwestern department of Cauca was killed last week. Edwin Dagua Ipia had received death threats from paramilitary groups prior to his murder. A local human rights group reported 10 indigenous people have been murdered in Colombia in a span of just eight days. Another indigenous governor in a neighboring area was attacked Saturday but survived. Local leaders are calling out the far-right government of Iván Duque for the spike in murders and a failure to protect indigenous leaders.
