What you'll do

At the Three Borders Frame (Argentinean side), the participants meet and we start the class in the open.

First, we draw a historical overview of colonization. The occupation of this South American territory by indigenous people was disturbed by religious orders, slave hunters and European settlers, who had been in conflict for at least 3 centuries.

In the following, we talk about the Triple Alliance War, the largest international armed conflict in South America in the nineteenth century that opposed Paraguay to the alliance between Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay. The inherited rivalries of colonial times (between Castile and Portugal) involved navigating the Parana, Paraguay, and Iguaçu rivers, but also related to the formation of national states.

Following, we talk about the context of land occupation and demarcation of the Triple Sourceira region - Foz do Iguaçu / Puerto Iguazu / Ciudad del Este.
