The Indigenous Terra Madre Network


If you look at a map of global agrobiodiversity hotspots, you soon realize that they overlap with indigenous people’s habitats. Protecting biodiversity should therefore involve protecting the cultural diversity of indigenous people, their rights and their ability to work out and to offer concrete solutions to problems such as climate change.

Their heritage, however, has been steadily eroded throughout history, and the survival of indigenous peoples proves how resilient these traditional societies are, held together by their identity – their culture, language and traditions linked to a geographical area – and the historical links with the environment that they have inhabited and depended on.

At Terra Madre Salone del Gusto 2016, in the heart of the Parco del Valentino in Turin, the Indigenous Terra Madre Network area aims to raise public awareness of these issues and to give indigenous communities around the world a space where they can discuss common problems and solutions.

In addition to talks, the public can learn more about indigenous cultures by attending artistic performances, held in the late afternoon, and enjoying videos made while spending time among communities.

The Indigenous Terra Madre Network area was made possible with contributions from the Ifad (International Fund for Agricultural Development) and the Christensen Fund. The morning workshops are for the Indigenous Terra Madre network only. Afternoon sessions will be open to the public.
