Revitalizing Indigenous Languages, Cultures, Cuisines, Histories, and Religions

The 9th Annual International Conference on Ethnic and Religious Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding

Conference Overview

In a rapidly globalizing world, indigenous languages, cultures, cuisines, histories, and religions are vital components of human heritage that should be revitalized, preserved, and learned. The loss of indigenous knowledge and practices poses a significant threat to the diversity, richness, and sustainability of our global heritage. The 9th Annual International Conference on Ethnic and Religious Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding aims to bring together scholars, researchers, educators, policymakers, activists, practitioners, and indigenous communities to explore innovative approaches, share insights, and exchange knowledge on how to revitalize, preserve, and transmit indigenous languages, cultures, cuisines, histories, and religions for the benefit of present and future generations.

Conference Objectives

This conference seeks to explore and develop innovative strategies, best practices, and transformative approaches to address the challenges faced in revitalizing, preserving, and transmitting indigenous languages, cultures, cuisines, histories, and religions.
