The origins of indigenous education and knowledge

Indigenous knowledge and sustainable resource management patterns provide a valuable font on traditional ways of observing global climate change and adaptation measures. Indigenous peoples have invented practices that are in tune with nature and have acquired acute senses to interpret the signs that nature sends them to make the right decisions.  

Indigenous connectedness with land and nature provides strength to the ecosystem. As modernity has shaped the world, the forces of globalization and development have eroded indigenous peoples connectedness to the ecosystem. IEF supports indigenous peoples in restoring their resilience and integrity with the land and nature, preserving the stability and diversity of local eco-systems.

To achieve our mission to advance indigenous education equity, IEF relies on support from donors.

IEF supports the 2030 UN
Sustainable Development Goals.
