In Honduras, hundreds of Indigenous people and Garifuna - who are descendants of Carib, Arawak and West Africans - have been meeting in a constitutional assembly. Today, they're putting the finishing touches on proposals for a new Honduran Constitution which calls for recognition of Indigenous and Garifuna peoples. The assembly has emphasized issues fundamental to indigenous and Garifuna autonomy, education and health care for marginalized communities. Tim Russo brings us more from Honduras.
