She is the coordinator of OFRANEH Europa. OFRANEH, the Organización Fraternal Negra Hondureña (Organization of Black brothers and sisters of Honduras), was born in 1978, as a Federation of the garífuna (afrodescendant) people of Honduras, fighting for their cultural and territorial rights, with the purpose of achieving survival as a differentiated culture.

I am Amanda Luna, born in Peru Huánuco - Quechua, an activist for the defence of indigenous peoples' rights, defender of Mother Nature. I lead the association MamaKiya e.V. and work at the University of Aachen in the field of research. Due to my activism I also continuously lead workshops on social and political issues from the perspective of the affected demographic. My focus is far away from the Eurocentric view, because I never stop strengthening my connection to my country and my social groups in Peru. It is a task that leads me to divide myself into two continents and which allows me to be open to several perspectives.
