- something to share -
Latin America is home to 42 million indigenous people, making up about 8% of the population. From the rocky Patagonian regions of Argentina to the lush Brazilian Amazon and the Andean villages of Colombia.
Yet their way of life is already threatened by rapid development in mining, oil extraction and deforestation. The virus also represents a new, and potentially catastrophic, risk.
The elderly - the group most vulnerable to complications from COVID-19 - are the guardians of many traditions and languages threatened with extinction.
"The fundamental importance of elders is that they hold the collective memory, particularly regarding their identity."
Because Latin America's indigenous populations are often preliterate, their history may not be written: it is passed down the generations by elders through storytelling.
"All indigenous wisdom is verbal, passed from generation to generation, so the elders carry all the accumulated experience,"
That experience - the one they keep.
IS WHAT WE ALL NEED TO PROTECT.
