International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples

Today is the International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples. I chose today to launch my personal blog, as Tell Me Grandfather was inspired by the passing on of ancient ways and traditions from our elders, worldwide.  I believe indigenous communities are the wards of this planet and they are key to our understanding of how to live on it and protect it. However, the human rights of indigenous communities are continually compromised and often abused in many regions of the world.  The exploitation, discrimination and marginalisation of these communities results in us threatening the very act of passing down crucial knowledge and wisdoms.  #WeAreIndigenous
