Values and ways of thinking,reflected in the languages, oral traditions and diverse cultural manifestations,collectively created and re-created over time, are the foundation of community life.the importance of harnessing indigenous knowledge and ensuring their bearers’ continuity in producing and broadcasting their skills, including respect for their practices in public services such as education and health. Media and communication are essential tools also to create spaces for the expression of indigenous voices in the ongoing debate of the role of their culture and identity in development.
