Consejo Regional Indígena del Cauca (CRIC)
The Regional Indigenous Council of Cauca (CRIC) is an association of indigenous authorities to which 90% of the indigenous councils and communities of the department of Cauca, Colombia belong. It was founded in Toribío on February 24, 1971, as a federation of just seven councils. At present it is constituted by one hundred and fifteen councils and eleven associations of town councils of the Nasa, Guambiano, Totoró, Polindara, Guanaco, Coconuco, Yanacona, Inga and Eperara peoples, grouped into nine zones.
The CRIC was co-founder of the ONIC, the National Indigenous Organization of Colombia.See more
