The Scottish Life Plan Tour

04/2018

The Misak, of the Cauca region in Colombia, were displaced from their lands and almost disappeared as a people. Over the last 40 years, they have reclaimed their territory, their culture and their futures against all odds. They did this by developing the Plan de Vida, an exceptional approach for communities to re-envision and take control of their futures. Pioneered by the Misak in the 1980s, this approach has been adopted by hundreds of indigenous peoples and communities across South America and beyond.

Misak indigenous leaders are coming to Sabhal Mòr Ostaig to exchange experiences on cultural revitalisation and the importance of mother tongue language and culture in community-led development. During the event Misak leaders Jeremias Tunubala, Liliana Pechene Muelas will host conversations to exchange knowledge and share insights on rebuilding community, reclaiming cultural identity, and collective visioning. This event is part of a tour of several events in Scotland during April and May 2018.
