The new Comarca will have a total delimitation area of 160,616 hectares, of which 125,141 hectares belong to the La Amistad International Park and 21,722 belong to the Palo Seco Protective Forest, both protected areas.
The sanction was carried out in the Plaza del Rey, in Sieyik, and was attended by the Naso king, Reynaldo Alexis Santana, and chiefs and chiefs of native peoples from all over the country. The new regulations were signed by the Minister of Government, Janaina Tewaney, and the Chief Executive.
Currently the government is under a mixture of constitutional and hereditary monarchy. The King is now elected by the people in a vote in which women can also run, but they must belong to the Santana family, the ruling dynasty, which began in the first half of the 20th century.
Cortizo wrote through his Twitter account: I sanctioned Law 656 that creates the Naso Tjër-Di region, guaranteeing the ancestral heritage of the Naso people and their rights. I have no doubt that our indigenous people, as they have done throughout history, they will continue to conserve these protected areas.
The president announced the construction of a 6-kilometer highway in the region to continue closing the gaps of inequality in this population. The road that includes the sections: Guabito - San Dan Druy - Tiger Hill; Silencio - Bonyic - Rancho Quemado; Charagre - Quebrada Carbón - Sieyic, will be tendered on December 30 for 29 million balboas.
Santana said that in the region the protected areas are doubly protected because “the Nasos are guardians of natural resources; proof of this is that the Teribe River and its forests have been protected for millennia ”.
