As we chase after modern knowledge, skills & lifestyles, are we loosing ourselves?
We are all indigenous to somewhere on this earth.
We all came from somewhere!
Our human identity isn’t in fashion brands, fast cars, academic achievements, air mileage and fancy houses.
Our identity depends on real connections with humanity, not things.
Berta Cáceres has taught us an expensive lesson – to protect our identity or allow our footprints to vanish from existence.
This International Women’s Day 2016, I celebrate Berta’s courage as a female warrior who fought for equality, environmental conservation, protection of her indigenous culture and peace!
