The quality of international relations today
There are questions when defining intercultural relationships we are still asking ourselves what is interculturality? questions that despite their simplicity ask us about what we know and what we ignore. It would seem so simple to be able to answer with definitions, statements containing the appropriate concepts, however, this is not so, every time we believe to have a possible answer, we find several questions that cause us reflection and even when we witness it we attach questions such as that several affect severalIssues and issues such as globalization, migration, transnationalization of capital and poverty, but also exoticism, the presence of the media and cultural change, processes that are presented every day almost as natural and as in world todayWe show us crisis and conflicts, population movements and complex forms of relationships between people and cultures, always resulting in a set of relationships between people who, when a conversation opens, opens a world of questions that seem that they start from present andThey prosecute the future. Interculturality can be defined as a process of communication and inclusion between people and groups with specific cultural identities, where the ideas and actions of a person or cultural group are not allowed to be above the other, that is, everything equitably with respect same rights themselvesAnd thus favoring at all times the dialogue, the consultation and, with it, the integration and coexistence enriched between cultures, as mentioned in the text is good news since it defines as a daily and complicated process that at some point everyone goes toUnderstand and understand and thus form union and know the cultural diversity of ethnicities always starting with respect for the form of expression and communication, in a healthy dialogue and as healthy we mean that ideas, actions form a future and even a sumakKawsay. Ecuador is a lucky country that consists with a lot.
In Ecuador there are different ethnicities among them mestizos, indigenous, Afro Ecuadorians, etc., It does not make them different makes them extraordinary and outstanding, the myth of a uniform nation mentions the one that we have known in appearance since in ancient times they forced us to follow a religion and respect their norms, different cultures had their different religions which in one way or another also forced them to disrespect the religion of which they were not part, at present, everyone is free to make the decision which opens a question of which idealizes us that it was better, the that force us or that we make the decision by taking into account the different points of view of cultures, in a diverse reality Ecuador is formed by people or groups of different class or nature, however as we mentioned in previous times it was almost not respected This diversity discriminating only by being part of a culture such as Ecuadorian Afro by calling it with black thieves, the indigenous people also Dolos onwards for being part of a market, when its work goes beyond being part of the field. Machismo is also part of this discrimination no longer cultural if no more social, according to men they were superior to women taking into account factors of a dominant and discriminatory vision towards them, young people in educational, social and cultural and even economic fieldbe part of intercultural relationships and diversity.
The recognition of ethnic diversity begins its roots from about twelve thousand years, where preceding indigenous peoples inhabited as it is known about Asia and Oceania, and there was an inequality of diversity and there was no respect, laws, customs and religion were imposed.exploits taking them to death in which they were subjected, at that time racism predominated, and the ones who suffered most were Ecuadorian Afro.
Indigenous organizations is the commune this base has existed for six or eight thousand years until now, peasant, indigenous and Afro -descendant organizations were formed, in the seventies and eighties the indigenous movement has been present with great force in national politics,The indigenous people of Ecuador have been recognized, but still they were given derogatory names such as Colorados, Jibaros or Aucas, with the passing of time and the constant struggle of their organizations, they have given their own names such as Quitchuas, Siona-Secoya, Cofanes Huaroni, Shuar, Achuar and the Amazonian Quichuas.
On the coast the Chachis Tsáchilas and Awas, each one has their language and culture, the importance of these peoples, is not given by numbers but for what has contributed to the development of biodiversity.
The indigenous struggle has been one of the most prominent in terms of the value it has contributed by showing as they are and united, its struggle for the rights of indigenous peasants was more intense, so the proposal of bilingual intercultural education arose, of This step advanced and affirmed the need to integrate the diversity of the country, it is a merit of these peoples and their constant struggle thus achieving their citizen rights, although sometimes their integrity or their rights are not respected, but there is a plus and That in the new Constitution the rights of communities, peoples and nationalities, the right to maintain, develop and freely strengthen their identity and diversity is recognized, also raised the use of the term "nationalities" to identify the indigenous people but declared themselves as " Plurinationalities ”and this was an advance in Ecuador and in Latin America receiving the support of certain sectors, it was not easy because they were always with different Cultades, rejections.
In this time of time, there have been cultural and linguistic tees for accepting the diversity of cultures not only of our country but also in the entire world as they cite in the example of Bolivia that was declared a plurinational state giving as a guideline the rest of Latin America and the world withThis assumes that over time there are advances that in one way or another, Ecuador adopts them both socially and in the political always prevailAll those who are part of biodiversity have demanded that rights be fulfilled wanting to convert an open communicative, participatory and intercultural society.
I am really understanding that we cannot divide our country for just putting a "plurinational" name, what we must do is respect reality, its identity, its culture, its diversity and not believe ourselves superior since this does not support the country anymore at allWell immersed it in more problems or conflicts. A curious fact of our indigenous brothers who in their shortly embroidered shirts highlights the shield and flag of Ecuador are central elements and they consider national symbols themselves knowing very well that they are part of the country the same would say the same of the Afro -Ecuadorians who have been relegatedFor racism but at the same time they have given us so much joy to cite an example in the 2002 and 2006 World Cup.His performance a new vision towards them, for all these events we must recognize their identity and continue fighting for the rights of peoples and assume with responsibility and optimism.
The great ethnic and cultural diversity must be achieved not only in words but in actions where we all collaborate to acceptance and that the changes allow to socialize with equity not to be complex and make a continuous and permanent effort to make it easy to learnand mutual always protruding values such as tolerance, respect and creativity guaranteeing that diversity is a reality.
