Helping indigenous communities build their capacity to protect their cultures, knowledge and territories and to determine their own futures
We support the propagation of education that is developed in indigenous territories; rooted in the knowledge systems and practices of the ancestors; and helping communities address the challenges of today. We support the promotion and spread of indigenous education through exchanges and skill-shares, producing tools, mentoring pioneers, and supporting movements to develop their criteria for implementation.
The Territories of Life toolkit is a series of 10 short videos that share stories of resistance, resilience and hope with communities on the front-line of the global rush for land.

We help create unique trainings for indigenous youth, focused on awakening their calling to defend their territories and providing them with the skills to facilitate participatory processes grounded in their own cultures.
