What a Job - Skill Building
Indigenous or tribal communities around the world are constantly struggling to maintain their rights, their traditions and their knowledge. They face the challenge of living in two worlds, the indigenous and the non-indigenous one, which are in constant tension with each other, with the latter having
more power in shaping the former. It has been well established that for centuries now, tribal communities have suffered from invasion and oppression which has gradually eroded their sense of self-worth leading to depreciation among their own tribespeople about their knowledge and skill. Yet, indigenous populations have managed to survive adapting in many different ways to adverse socioeconomic conditions and carrying on with their sustainable livelihood systems.
