The India Greens Party (iGP) today said the Indigenous peoples’ special bond and connection with nature have always protected the environment despite their difficulties due to governments’ covert and overt attempts to control their lives; and it must be recognised.

The party said the Indigenous peoples’ bond with their past and cultures is so strong that many of them still follow the same systems practised by their ancestors for centuries. These systems have stood the test of time and have always come up with positive outcomes.

The Indigenous women are vital to the preservation of ancestral knowledge, which can help modern societies. They protect the traditional natural resources and indigenous territories and champion the rights for indigenous peoples across the globe. However, the Indigenous women are poorly represented worldwide and continue to face various forms of discrimination and violence.
