Re-Storying Biocultural Diversity: Wisdom from Young Indigenous Leaders

Special Issue, Summer/Winter 2019 in the northern hemisphere


It’s time to listen to the many voices of Indigenous youth!

In 2019, Terralingua started a special initiative: the Indigenous Youth Storytellers Circle (IYSC). The IYSC provides a venue in which young, Indigenous people from all around the world can share their stories. In tandem with the 2019 UN International Year of Indigenous Languages, we put out a worldwide call to young Indigenous people to tell us how they are reaffirming their cultural identities; reconnecting to their ancestral languages, traditional knowledge and practices, values, and ways of life; and reclaiming ancestral links with the land.

All across the world, young Indigenous people are taking the lead in showing ways to live respectfully on Earth. Their languages, cultures, and homelands bear the wisdom of generations of ancestors, and their stories offer much-needed inspiration. It is our honor and privilege to support these upcoming Indigenous leaders in their efforts to both restore and re-story their diverse biocultural heritage. Find their stories in this special double issue (160 pages!) of Langscape Magazine.
