For thousands of years, indigenous communities have been caretakers of the environment, protecting their lands, respecting wildlife and utilizing traditional knowledge passed down through generations. Today, they continue to safeguard some of the most biodiverse areas on the planet, and although indigenous peoples comprise only around 6% of the global population, they protect 80% biodiversity left in the world.
We support land buy-back, conservation & reforestation projects to expand and restore indigenous territories
The indigenous have long used singing and arts as a way to tell their stories and deepen their connection with nature. The strength of their language and vibration of their words are powerful. Each song and sacred design is a prayer for the earth, signalling to the sacred animals and spirits of the land and water.
We support indigenous music making by donating musical instruments and recording equipment to produce and release indigenous music. We support indigenous craft making through sponsoring of production facilities.
Cultural centres and infrastructure provide necessary spaces to support the education and visitors on the importance of indigenous culture, why it is so critical to keep the forest alive, of native remedies of modern day medicine derived from the jungle, how we can use the forest as a natural pharmacy and why indigenous culture and tradition is so in balance with nature.
We support indigenous villages to build community structures in order to share their culture, host educational events and provide spaces for meetings and gatherings
