2.To launch the photobook “Indigenous Women, Ancient Wisdom”
3.To share information about the Global Hub on Indigenous Food Systems and the UN Food Systems Summit
4.To promote the narrative that land tenure security is key to strengthen Indigenous Food Systems, reverse biodiversity loss, and combat climate change
Indigenous Women are the primary caregivers not only in their families but in their communities. This places them at the intersections of gender, sustainability and future milestones; a link to past traditions and future generations. They are the custodians of indigenous cultures rich in knowledge, history, skills.
Their role as caregivers also extends to the protection of not just communities and families but also includes nurturing their land and environment.
Join us in this crucial conversation on the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples on the 9th of August with Indigenous Women leaders who will share their lived experiences as healers and practitioners of Indigenous Knowledge and Food systems.
