A new publication will be released in the Siemenpuu Foundation publication series in 2014. The publication will be themed 'Indigenous peoples and local communities - discovering expressive means to establish one's rights'. The format of the publication will be a collection of stories.
The collecting of the stories will focus in the life of communities today. Particular emphasis will be placed on the consolidation of traditional concepts of justice with international community rights. Another theme in the publication will be the strengthening or building of community identity through (political) organisation. Furthermore, a particular interest will be placed on stories stemming from victorious movements and struggles.
The stories will be collected directly from communities, and they may vary greatly in form. The planning of the publication and the story-collecting process will begin in early 2014. The development of the process and the creation of stories can be followed on this website. A selection of the stories will be printed as a book, while some will be accessible online on the Siemenpuu Foundation website.
During 2015, a theatrical play will be dramatised based on the stories.
