Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact


There is no better than International Women’s Day for us to launch the sixth edition of HerStory, a series of profiles of indigenous women leaders who have formed a chain of resistance to the patriarchy in solidarity with one another across AIPP’s network in South Asia, Mekong, till Taiwan and Japan. This is their story, a testimony to true grit and resilience.

We applaud Elina Horo, Tripta Lungeli Magar, Chinimaya Majhi, Jyotiprava Larma, Anne Lasimbang, Kakay Tolentino, Su Hsin, Kanako Uzawa, Luong Thi Truong, Khamla Keovongphet, and Malina Lopaying for their courage, commitment, and sacrifice to stand up for Indigenous women’s and peoples’ rights, take up leadership roles and lead Indigenous women movements. They are a role model for other Indigenous women, including the younger generation, to pass on knowledge, #BreaktheBias, voice their rights, breakthrough stigmas and reinvent traditional practices to cope with new challenges.
