International Day for Worlds Indigenous Peoples

This video ends the celebration by PTC of the International Day for Worlds Indigenous Peoples. It highlights how PTC for several decades has been one of the leading pioneers in the Pacific region in promoting the contextual and indigenous nature of learning and in particular how life-affirming philosophies and values of the Pacific could enhance the ‘whole of life’ vision of the Gospel. With its new vision of ‘leadership for justice’ and the drive to reaffirm the ‘whole of life’ vision of God’s Pacific household, PTC is aiming to strengthen the role of faith and indigenous spiritualities in subverting and rewriting the current development narrative in the region. A narrative that has contributed to the destruction and victimization of communities including the Earth due to extractive and unsustainable economies that benefit a few. This rethinking requires putting life and wellbeing back to the heart of development.
