Created under the 1940 Pátzcuaro International Convention, the basic objectives of the Inter-American Indian Institute are to assist in coordinating the Indian affairs policies of the member States and to promote research and training of individuals engaged in the development of indigenous communities. The Institute has its headquarters in Mexico City and its Director is Dr. José Matos Mar. As noted in the 1993-1994 Annual Report of the Secretary General, the Eleventh Inter-American Indian Congress, held in Managua, Nicaragua, in November 1993, agreed to establish a special committee made up of representatives of the governments of Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Paraguay and Nicaragua and of the indigenous peoples, for the purpose of preparing a proposal for amending the Pátzcuaro Convention to be part of a new inter-American system.
