Indigeneity is not exactly where one looks for world politics. Yet it is probably one of the hip sites of global governance today. Indigenous peoples are engaging in international relations with a vibrancy that belies any perception of their politics as isolated or passive. The Fifth Continental Summit of Indigenous Peoples of the Abya Yala, held November 10-15 in Cauca, Colombia, was only the latest expression of Indigenous diplomacy. The Indigenous expression Abya Yala (“Continent of Life” in the language of the Kuna people of Panama) refers to the Americas, and increasingly to a series of continental summits. The process started with two ad-hoc meetings, the 1980 Encounter of Southern Cone Indian Organizations in Ollantaytambo (Peru) and the 1990 Continental Conference on Five Hundred Years of Indigenous Resistance in Quito (Ecuador). In 2000, the First Continental Summit of Indigenous Peoples took place in Mexico, followed by a Second Summit in Ecuador (2004), a Third in Guatemala (2007), and a Fourth in Peru (2009). The process stirred up other continental venues like the Summit of Indigenous Communication, which held its second summit October 7-13 in Oaxaca (Mexico).

DIVAS (Digital Interactive Visual Arts Sciences) for Social Justice is a grassroots community organization that aims to:
bridge the digital divideteach media literacy + cultural awareness amongst young women of color
Founders, Sha Sha Feng and Clarisa James decided to form DIVAS after collaborating during graduate school. James received her BA in Music & Media Studies and Feng received her BA in Computer Science & Music. Both are alumnae of the MFA program in Integrated Media Arts at Hunter College. They are actively involved in creating socially conscious media.
Through their personal experiences, Feng and James became painfully aware of the under-representation of women of color in the Information Technology and New Media fields. Hence, DIVAS was born!
In recent studies it has been determined that the Information Technology field is made up of only 35% women and the number of women of color within that percentage is even less. DIVAS for Social Justice is determined to tear down economic and racial barriers to encourage young women of color to become future leaders in their communities and the Information Technology/New Media fields.
