A Boundary Signing Agreement Between Sunday Wood and Conejo

Over the weekend, residents from the southern communities of Sunday Wood and Conejo Creek met to sign a boundary agreement, following the completion of a G.P.S. mapping exercise to delineate their respective territories. It’s part of an ongoing activity that is taking place among certain indigenous communities within the Toledo District. Here’s a brief clip provided to us by the Sarstoon and Temash Institute for Indigenous Management.

“Today was a historic day as the boundary signing agreement was made. I believe that’s the first step to moving forward for our community.”

Pablo Te, Resident, Sunday Wood

“My name is Pablo Te, I live in Sunday Wood. The reason I am talking about the boundary between Conejo and Sunday Wood, I like to see what Conejo is doing. They invited the ladies and the chairman to go and do the boundary mapping or the G.P.S. mapping between [Conejo] and Sunday Wood. That is where I like it and that is how we come together and to do our boundary line all around the villages of Conejo, Crique Sarco, Corazon, San Lucas and Santa Teresa.”

Enrique Makin, Alcalde, Conejo Creek

“My name is Enrique Makin, I’m the First Alcalde of Conejo Creek. The purpose of our meeting or visit here in Sunday Wood is to do the signing agreement with them in terms of the verification of our boundary line. [I am not present alone today] My Second Alcalde, the village chairman, along with the village council, as well as the elders within our village who came here, also with the youths. Because the importance is that the youths need to understand and be aware and observe what’s happening accordingly, and the work that we are doing in terms of our boundary line.”
