In October of 2015, following a decade-long legal investigation, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights issued two judgments against the Honduran government for its role in the violation of Garifuna territorial rights in the communities Triunfo de la Cruz and Punta Piedra. I examine how the legal arena becomes a crucial site of struggle not only for indigenous peoples but also for the state to extend its sovereign authority and to defend the supremacy of mestizo rights over the rights of indigenous and black peoples.
