The House of the Jaguar
Lenca Indigenous Nation
This is the virtual home of the indigenous nations who are members of the great kingdom of Managuara. Among those are several Lenca ethnic groups that include the Taulepa, Poton, Cacaguira, Lenca Guajiquiro, Jiboas, Maya Chorti, Xinka, Tauahka, Uluas, Miskitu, Mayagnas, Chontal, Rama, and those tribes who have settled within our land, and whose ancestors forged alliance with our royal house and its Guancasco. Together we are the pillars of the great House of the Jaguar. We are many peoples in one realm. You can learn more about our land people and tradition on our tribal site lencas.net
Our indigenous nation and its rights and freedoms are guaranteed by virtue of the dynastic Taulepa tradition, the tribal law and the UN Declaration of the Rights of the Indigenous Peoples of the World, 2007. Specifically, our rights are enshrined in the articles bellow:
Lenca Constitution, 1994, 1995, 2008.
“The descendants of all indigenous Lenca tribes, the descendants of the other allied indigenous tribes which have inhabited the territories of Managuara, and which have forged peaceful alliance with the Lenca authorities, are the Nation. Together with the Princely House of the Jaguar, form the Commonwealth of Managuara, and are protected and bounded by this Constitution”.
The UN Declaration, 2007.
"Indigenous peoples have the right to maintain and strengthen their distinct political, legal, economic, social and cultural institutions, while retaining their right to participate fully, if they so choose, in the political, economic, social and cultural life of the State."
"Indigenous peoples and individuals have the right to belong to an indigenous community or nation, in accordance with the traditions and customs of the community or nation concerned. No discrimination of any kind may arise from the exercise of such a right."
Since ancient time, the tribes have respected and defended the Jaguar House and its Dynasty, which not only has the privilege to have named most lands within the realm, but are also the impartial authorities of the multi-tribes. Today, the Jaguar House, exercising its dynastic functions and the Lenca Crown, provides all its citizens with this portal, so that wherever they are, they have access to their kingdom, the law, culture, history and much more.
