It is thanks to the leadership and perseverance of the Community Council that these land titles are finally being granted. This process is being undertaken in view of Law 70 of 1993, and in accordance with sentence T-909 of 2009 that acknowledges the collective territorial rights due to the ancestral occupation of territory. The collective title will benefit more than 18,000 people and covers some 100,000 hectares in the department of Valle del Cauca. Collective lands are inalienable, immune from prescription and cannot be revoked.
