Indigenous peoples themselves must be key actors
The Elgå project is one example of civil society action.
In Orissa, India, a project has started where Indigenous children from 10 groups of peoples will be instructed through the medium of their mother tongues. (Contacts: professor Ajit Mohanty, dr. Mahendra Kumar Mishra)
In Nepal, a project has started where all Indigenous children (around 100 groups) will be instructed through their own languages (Contacts: dr. Lava Deo Awasthi, professor David Hough).
There are many other examples in all parts of the world. This includes Canada (Andrea!)
