An Indigenous Perspective On Humanities Survival On Earth. I just watched this amazing TED Series of Talks. And as a TEDx licensee and organizer of two TEDx events, I want to share it with you. Eighty percent of the world’s remaining biodiversity lands, rivers, and forests is within Indigenous communities. Basically, 80% of planet earth is owned by Indigenous people. Indigenous people however don’t have any legally recognized land rights. Their ancestral lands have been distributed to third parties (Global Corporations and elites} as concessions for mining, fishing, and logging. These lands are essential for climate, freshwater, and food security.

With a redistribution of ancestral lands back to their Indigenous guardians’ climate shifts due to the last 100 years’ destruction of our forests, water and forests can be reversed.

Eighty percent of the world’s remaining biodiversity lands, rivers, and forests are within Indigenous communities. However, their legal ownership rights have been appropriated from them by global corporations and global elites.
