Members of this Cooperation Circle (CC) have found that Indigenous wisdom is often left out of consideration for several reasons. They understood that a group that could bring Indigenous voices to the interfaith table was needed. Indigenous People from around the world met in San Francisco on June 2014, and just being able to come together and meet with one another was a great stride forward in creating the network that members hope to achieve. They hope to create regular meetings where CC members can discuss significant Indigenous issues and mobilize a global response, weaving together circles within circles.
During the last meeting of Hidden Seeds: Global Indigenous Network CC, they had folks from Russia, Canada, Australia, Africa, South and North America and others across all eight URI regions. They discussed issues such as the usurpation of native water, land and sacred sites. They discovered that they share so much in common, thus coming out of the meeting feeling truly united in cause around the world.

I will not be in silence anymore

I was born in Guatemala and my ancestry is of Maya lineage. It is very seldom that I speak about myself because our family experienced such horrible violence from our dictatorship.
