Indigenous voices have been an essential part of URI’s formation since the beginning. Cooperation Circles act to protect Indigenous people’s rights to live and thrive in accordance with their traditions.
Examples of our work in this Action Area:
- Comunidad Cosmica CC, in Buenos Aires, Argentina preserves Indigenous cultures' rich oral histories by publishing written stories.
- 1God CC, in Clayton, Victoria, Australia, leads a movement to return uncovered Aboriginal human remains for dignified burial in accordance with Aboriginal traditions.
- Indlondlo Zulu Dancers Cultural and Art Centre, in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, keeps traditional Zulu dances, costume, and culture alive through classes and performances.
