There are 370 million Indigenous people around the world spread across more than 90 countries. They belong to more than 5,000 different Indigenous peoples and speak more than 4,000 languages. Indigenous people represent about 5% of the world’s population. (source: Amnesty)
Among the thousands of diverse Indigenous peoples of the world, there are some deeply grounded commonalities. One of these is the broadly accepted principle of reciprocity: an ethics based in the interconnectedness of people, animals, land, and spirit. What are the roots of this worldview? How is it practiced in different parts of the world? And what are the consequences of orientating their personal and social lives along its principles?
