RPP Colloquium: Indigenous Guardianship, Nature, and Peace: Holistic Being and Living

• Margarita Mora, Director of Partnerships, Nia Tero
• Indira S. Raimberdy, Executive Director, Peace Building Center

• Professor Dan McKanan, Ralph Waldo Emerson Unitarian Universalist Association Senior Lecturer in Divinity, Harvard Divinity School

Focus of Margarita's talk: Margarita will provide an overview of indigenous guardianship and the need to use holistic approaches that do not split indigenous peoples' identity and culture from the management and protection of their territories. She will share experiences where indigenous peoples' efforts to strengthen guardianship over their territories has also led to them strengthening their culture and practices and to reducing conflict.

Focus of Indira's talk: Indira will share a comparative analysis of indigenous culture and religious systems dominating Kyrgyzstan and Central Asia, and will talk about the importance of indigenous culture as a coherent system of values and life practices that can enhance peace potential at both individual and collective levels.
