Honduras Gives Indigenous Title To Coastal Lands

The Honduran government granted title to more than 1.6 million acres along the country’s border with Nicaragua and the Caribbean coast to the Miskito Indian communities that inhabit the area.

The land lies in Honduras‘ northeastern corner, an area known as the Cape of Gracias A Dios. The government already awarded Miskito Indians title to an additional 265,000 acres over the last year.
