"Somos Amazonia", una nueva identidad inter-indígena en la Amazonía ecuatoriana: ¿Hacia un Jus aplidia, un derecho basado en el origen ecológico?

Abstract

The double colonization of the Northern Ecuadorian Amazon, coming from the Southern Amazon but mainly from the Coast and the Sierra, has multiplied the perceptions, rights and management methods in this territory. This article explores these differences and reconstructs the history of these colonizations and the rights of access to land, private for the colonos and communal for indígenos. These legally differentiated groups are similar in their perception of the territory and their socio-economic and environmental limitations: almost all agricultural products are not profitable. Between the growing Urbs and the remaining forest, the countryside is slowly shrinking. Communities are appearing that combine indigenous people and settlers and that copy the indigenous communes’ rights and practices. However, this communal right is acquired for the Amazonian groups but not for others, indigenos or colonos, defining de facto a Jus Aplidia, along the Jus soli and the Jus sanguinis.
