Carrying on the Fight

Mariano, Aisah Czarianne

I have been a part of the Indigenous Peoples’ struggle since I was studying in college. Little did I know of my culture as I grew up in the city, yet the work of urban-based Indigenous Peoples’ organizations has led me to realize the different issues faced by Indigenous Peoples. It started with a question of “why” and “how” Indigenous youth can better the situation of Indigenous Peoples and become present and future leaders.

Now, as a part of the Asia Young Indigenous Peoples Network (AYIPN), it has come as a realization to me that Indigenous youth can and will change the path to a better and more sustainable future for Indigenous Peoples worldwide.
