Chair of the Association for Indigenous Women and Peoples of Chade
Awakening Natural Cultural Intelligence, Worldwide
Today- a few days ahead of World Day to Combat Desertification, we have with us someone who knows how to be resilient in the face of extreme climate and an ever-changing, harsh environment. She is Hindou Ibrahim, Chair of the Association for Indigenous Women and Peoples of Chad. I caught up with her at the Annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos 2019 and asked her why it was especially important for indigenous people to be part of creating a new architecture for the fourth industrial revolution. We spoke at length of the inherent earth wisdom indigenous peoples naturally intelligently have within their cultural DNA. As they grow up so close and so dependent on the natural earth cycles, the migration of animals, and the seasonal climate; they are very attuned to living in harmony with the natural world. They know how to be a part of nature. There is no distinction (nor need to distinguish) between nature and humanity. They are one.
