CODENPE was created in 1992 under Law 150 and recognizes the validity of indigenous law, both for designating authorities and directorates of institutions connected to indigenous development and for planning and executing projects in territories of indigenous nationalities, in accordance with coordinated planning among the different communities.
Although various governments used CODENPE to provoke division within the indigenous movement by prioritizing state investment in those communities that demonstrated their loyalty, it also served to improve infrastructure in indigenous communities and implement development programs using the perspective of the diverse nationalities.
