Recognizing and honouring indigenous culture and knowledge, as well as supporting indigenous stewardship of the millions of acres of land under indigenous management represents a potential transformative pathway to meeting the SDGs.

In June 2020, GEO Indigenous Alliance representatives Diana Mastracci, James Rattling Leaf Sr. and Titus Letaapo joined a forum for Indigenous Peoples at the United Nations High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) to discuss opportunities and challenges for increasing Indigenous Peoples engagement in the co-development, co-creation, and use of Earth observations (EO) data and tools. This session was moderated by Steven Ramage from the GEO Secretariat. 

James Rattling Leaf Sr. joins Indigenous leaders from around the world for a panel discussion during GEO Week 2019 in Canberra, Australia.
