The overarching goal of this series coordinated by the Swift foundation and the First Nations Development Institute is the search of new ways of pleading for clarity and using appropriate language to ensure respectful and positive relationships with indigenous peoples and marginalized groups and avoid terms that may be discriminatory or offensive or the source of strategies that misuse their heritage and turn into another means of assimilation and displacement.
There were three webinars carried out in English and Spanish:
1. Agroecology, Restorative Agriculture, and 10,000 Year-Old Indigenous Food Knowledge
2. Conservation, Protected Areas and Indigenous Homelands PART 1: Voices from Turtle Island/North America
