2017 Kenya Workshop / Taller en Kenia de 2017

 

Indigenous languages, culture and way of lives are under siege, not only in the Africa but around the world. They are in danger of disappearing because they are not being transmitted to the next generation. The wisdom and practices of Indigenous Peoples are expressed through stories, rituals, songs, art and hands-on, ecological practices on the land. Sharing this knowledge is critical for the resilience of bio cultural systems.

With the disappearance of the elders, oral heritage risks becoming lost, whereas it is fundamental that the younger generations have access to it in order for the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIPs) to be applied in the countries and communities. 

The main challenge therefore, is to safeguard and transmit an oral tradition that is disappearing to the younger generation in order to ensure that their rights are actually observed in their respective countries. The aim of the workshop was to have the youths get trained on operating Audio-Visual equipments for the purpose of collecting oral memory of the Elders during the workshop and after in their respective communities.

By gathering at the Workshop, the 11 youths and 6 Elders from various Indigenous communities from Africa were brought together during this 7-days workshop in Narok, Kenya in a way that instructs the youth and empowers them. The issue of sustainability - particularly relevant for a project on memory - is ensured Audio-Visual video training and follow-up on the part of the 11 indigenous youths, who have the skills and equipment to continue to produce videos for their communities, and to collect and disseminate the memory of their Elders.
