PLEASE RESERVE A TICKET THROUGH OUR EVENTBRITE LINK AND WE WILL BE IN TOUCH WITH MORE INFORMATION ABOUT HOW TO ATTEND.

A webinar with Misak leaders Jeremias Tunubalá Ullune and Liliana Pechene Muelas.

Liliana and Jeremias will share what the Misak response to the pandemic has been, and how the community balances short-term crisis responses with long-term community visioning and planning. They will also speak about other indigenous communities with whom they have worked in Colombia and in the Peruvian and Ecuadorian Amazon region.

The Misak were displaced from their lands and almost disappeared as a people. Over the last 40 years they have reclaimed their territory, their culture and their futures against all odds. They did this by developing the Plan de Vida, an exceptional approach for communities to re-envision and take control of their futures. Pioneered by the Misak in the 1980s, this approach has been adopted by hundreds of indigenous peoples and communities across South America and beyond.

Respuestas a la pandemia y planeación comunitaria a largo plazo: aprendiendo de los Misak

Encuentro por zoom con los líderes Jeremías Tunubalá Ullune y Liliana Pechene Muelas

Liliana y Jeremías compartirán cómo ha sido la respuesta de los Misak ante la pandemia, y cómo la comunidad balancea respuestas de corto plazo con la planeación y visiones de largo plazo. Ellos tambien van a hablar de la experiencia de otros pueblos indigenas con quienes han trabajado en Colombia, en la Amazonia Peruana y Ecuadoriana.

Los Misak fueron desplazados de su tierra y casi desaparecen como pueblo. En los últimos 40 años ellos han reclamado su territorio, su cultura y su futuro contra viento y marea. Lograron esto desarrollando su Plan de Vida, un enfoque excepcional para que las comunidades se re-imaginen y tomen control de su futuro. Introducido por los Misak en la década de los 80, este enfoque ha sido adoptado por cientos de pueblos indígenas y comunidades en América del Sur y en todo el mundo.
