The global health promotion community is becoming more aware of Indigenous Peoples and their knowledge, which hold some of the solutions to our global environmental crisis and human well-being. This session will share lessons learned from engaging with Indigenous Peoples in the Moana/Pacific region on addressing planetary health, human well-being and inequities. The session will also encourage participants to share similar experience in other parts of the world, and discuss challenges, opportunities and issues on engaging with Indigenous Peoples. All speakers are Indigenous from the Pacific region.
