Indigenous Peoples have known how to live on and take care of the land since times immemorial. We know that wherever you find cultural diversity, you will be sure to find biological diversity, in fact, globally there are overlaps of areas rich in biodiversity with areas of cultural and linguistic diversity. These are the areas managed by Indigenous Peoples.
