Indigenous People

Indigenous people from around the world hold the key to our future. They are the ones who have held true to our Mother Earth over the centuries, who have lived in balance with their environment and understand what we need to do to survive as a species. Their wisdom is very powerful and we need to listen to their voices and protect their rights to the land they care for.
In this section you will find links to different organisations who support the rights and interests of Indigenous people, words of wisdom and interesting articles about what is happening in the world.
