When Land, Knowledge And Roots Are Lost: Indigenous Peoples And Displacement

The life and identity of indigenous peoples is inextricably linked to their land. Land holds deep emotional, cultural, social, philosophical and religious values for them. For many indigenous peoples migrating is also part of their life, an expression of their identity, culture, and livelihoods. Conflicts, development projects, urbanization, land rights violations, disasters and climate change, however, can force communities from areas where they have habitually lived.
