Following centuries upon centuries of exploitation, displacement, violence and war, just 380 million Indigenous people remain on Earth.
Humanity’s Indigenous peoples, keepers of deep planetary wisdom, have throughout centuries experienced huge threats to their way of life. Many have been forced to live far from their home regions, disconnected from familiar cultural reference points. Poverty, racism, and environmental degradation are obstacles to meeting basic needs for far too many.
Prioritizing the well-being of Indigenous people is essential to restoring balance in the relationship between living systems and the Earth’s human inhabitants.
