RESILIENCE AND RESISTANCE

RESILIENCE AND RESISTANCE

In Mexico around 12 percent of the population belongs to indigenous groups. Nevertheless, their historic situation has been complex and shaped by colonisation, cultural assimilation, and discrimination. They have been forced to struggle for their rights and acknowledgement of their territories.

In the indigenous peoples’ worldview, their territories are more than just the borders of the land they live on and cultivate. They are spaces where life is sustained, where relationships are formed, and where language is practised and taught. Constructing ways to imagine and perceive the world. This includes a particular relationship with the natural world and the creation of spaces where people gather and express their thankfulness for being alive.
