Honduras Grants Indigenous Population Over 1.6 Million Acres Of Coastal Lands

The government announced Thursday that it has granted title to more than 1.6 million acres (655,000 hectares) along Honduras’ border with Nicaragua and the Caribbean coast to the Miskito Indian communities that inhabit the area.

The executive director of Honduras’ National Agrarian Institute, Reynaldo Vega, said the Miskitos can use the land titles to defend the area’s natural resources. He said mining, gas, oil and lumber companies wanting to work in that area would have to deal with the Miskitos as owners of the land.
