Indigenous Terra Madre network
Slow Food and the Indigenous Terra Madre network is connecting with a diverse range of Indigenous Peoples’ networks, communities and organizations around the world to gain vital local and regional knowledge, and learn more about different communities in all corners of the world. The Indigenous Terra Madre network involves thousands of individuals in over 370 communities found in more than 60 countries worldwide.
Slow Food’s first event dedicated entirely to Indigenous Peoples took place in Sweden in 2011 and was followed by the second Indigenous Terra Madre meeting held in Meghalaya, India in November 2015. The events brought together representatives of Indigenous communities from around the world to discuss how to bring their knowledge and vision of food production into modern times.
