Indigenous Land Rights and Large Scale Mining
About this session
“When it comes to mining I think it’s important to hear a critical voice coming from an Indigenous perspective because there are different values.” Nuskmata Jacinda Mack . This panel explores the indigenous view around large scale mining and brings with it the data from the World Recourse Institute. Mining interest own land across indigenous territories globally. We take a closer look at mining concessions in the Amazon, where mining contributes to deformation and the cultural destruction of indigenous peoples. The data is being used with mining companies, to anticipate conflicts that shareholders and the public would object to. As an industry that uses 80% of the world's gold, we should understand whose land our gold comes from, and if they have given their consent for us to have that gold.
