Taking place at GLF Bonn 2019, June, 22, this Voices of the Landscape plenary brought together six Indigenous Peoples sharing their wisdom and stories with the audience. The session was opened by a traditional prayer performed by Lola Cabnal from Guatemala preceded by a traditional song by Taymur community representatives.
