NCIP Pampanga Community Service Center joins the international community in the meanigful celebration of the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples highlighting the role of indigenous women in the preservation and transmission of traditional knowledge!
As the UN puts it, “Indigenous women are the backbone of indigenous peoples’ communities and play a crucial role in the preservation and transmission of traditional ancestral knowledge. They have an integral collective and community role as carers of natural resources and keepers of scientific knowledge. Many indigenous women are also taking the lead in the defense of indigenous peoples’ lands and territories and advocating for indigenous peoples’ collective rights worldwide.”
We are one with our IP Women in their journey for empowerment by recognizing and asserting their role not just in the preservation and transmission of traditional knowledge but in the pursuit of total community development.
