Aparecida 529: Integration Of Indigenous People

A new section: Integration Of Indigenous And Afro-Americans. First, the people who were here before Eastern Hemisphere folks:

529. As disciples of Jesus Christ incarnate in the life of all peoples, with faith we discover and recognize the “seeds of the Word”(Cf. Santo Domingo 245) present in the traditions and cultures of the indigenous peoples of Latin America. We esteem their deep communal appreciation for life, present in all creation, in everyday existence, and in the age-old religious experience which energizes their cultures, and which reaches its fullness in the revelation of the true face of God by Jesus Christ.

For deeper examination, check an English translation of the 2007 document from the Aparecida Conference.
