Indigenous Peoples: A Global Perspective


For centuries, Indigenous Peoples on all continents have travelled the world, sharing traditional teachings through storytelling and art, and more recently research and social media. As they share their music, theatre, dance, other art forms, they spread their values, tenets and cultures.

This is an opportunity to learn about Indigenous Peoples' international experiences. Participants will meet and hear from Indigenous panellists who will relay the importance of discovering Mother Earth as a whole and sharing their Nations with the world. Join us for this special opportunity to hear about a global perspective on the rich diversity of cultures they cherish and share.
