Protocols developed by Indigenous peoples or mobile or local communities (“community protocols”) are gaining recognition as a useful means by which a range of peoples and communities can engage with others according to their values, and on the basis of customary, national and international rights and responsibilities.
In this video, Indigenous Peoples concerned, experts and practitioners on the ground discuss community protocols, answering the questions: Why are they so important to ensure justice for Indigenous and Local Communities? And what makes them so successful?

We're fighting for our lives
Indigenous Peoples are putting their bodies on the line and it's our responsibility to make sure you know why. That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage. By supporting IC you're empowering the kind of journalism we need, at the moment we need it most.
