Seeds of Peace

Video

Seeds of Peace’ is a 15-minute video on IPACC’s mediation & conflict resolution project with the indigenous Nama people of South Africa’s Richtersveld World Heritage Site. 
 
The mediation project aims to empower the Richtersveld Nama to resolve conflicts without resorting to litigation. The video outlines the background to conflicts dividing the Nama community and follows IPACC’s pilot mediation training workshop with the Richtersveld Nama. IPACC plans to develop a mediation training model that can be used by other indigenous communities across Africa.

PETITION TO AFRICAN GOVERNMENTS:

Indigenous Environment Defenders.

Africa’s hunter-gatherer and nomadic pastoralist peoples have lived symbiotically and sustainably within Africa’s ecosystems for millenia. Their Traditional Knowledge Systems are treasure houses of indigenous knowledge.

Under colonialism, African hunters and nomads suffered land dispossession and cultural oppression. In the post-colonial era, they’ve advocated for their land, cultural and human rights.

Now, in this Age of Climate Change, Africa’s hunter-gatherer and nomadic pastoralist peoples are recognised as frontline guardians and managers of African biodiversity, and provide early warning for climate change trends.

We appeal to African governments to formally recognise the Traditional Knowledge Systems and practices of hunters and nomads.
