Aborigines, with their age-old traditions, carry within themselves invaluable knowledge for the human heritage. They are the best protectors of nature, biodiversity, seeds and agricultural, medical, pharmacological, phyto-therapeutic and ecological knowledge.
The resilience of these populations is fragile. Threats are overwhelming for these vulnerable communities.
Some programs benefit the Ādivāsī-s emergency food distribution, televisions, and generators. But beyond that, and it is a necessity that they express, they need to find the livelihoods corresponding to their way of life, to be recognized and encouraged for their invaluable skills, and to be supported to conserve their lands. As for us, we need to learn from Ādivāsī-s how to live in harmony with Nature, thanks to it and for it.
