Racism and violence perpetrated against indigenous peoples is not only a legacy of a colonial and violent past but it continues to be a plague and threat to conservation, climate, and environmental justice. Indigenous communities all across are still mostly displaced and marginalized according to the Western assumption that they have little or nothing to contribute to.
On the contrary Indigenous people have critically important knowledge and practices and in fact calls for the integration of Indigenous traditional ecology into mainstream natural management practices are growing.
In this webinar we are calling in indigenous voices to learn from their different but common experiences and draw from and build on their ancestral knowledge.
