The purpose of the Binational Forum is to bring together representatives and community members of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe in Arizona with the eight Rio Yaqui Pueblos in the Rio Yaqui Valley, Sonora, Mexico to address and discuss the urgent international human rights situation and its impact on the Yaqui communities.

With regard to the Binational Forum’s mandate, a paramount objective is to facilitate and support discussions concerning Yaqui human rights issues relating to the following areas:

  • Yaqui economic and social development
  • Yaqui culture and education
  • Yaqui perspectives on the environment and public health
  • Yaqui self-determination

The significance of the Binational Forum recognizes that urgency arising from current human rights violations facing the Yaqui people in and around the Yaqui basin.  A primary goal of the Binational Forum will be to assess and recommend ways of overcoming systemic barriers to on-going indigenous human rights violations.

For example, the Rio Yaqui was drained, flattened, and removed from the lower Yaqui basin and the Yaqui Delta in violation of Yaqui human rights.  With the Pacific drainage system and costal estuaries gone, the denial of safe drinking water in and around the Yaqui Pueblos has resulted in a public health crisis characterized by unconscionable infant mortality rates.

Within the context of indigenous human rights protections, the Binational Forum will provide an essential venue for Yaqui rights holders to identify and establish a protocol to address this pressing issue.
