In Barotseland, indigenous wisdom has always played a significant role in our relationship with the environment. Our elders have shared their knowledge of the land, the seasons, and the delicate balance of nature.
These traditional practices have become even more critical in the face of climate change. As we see shifts in rainfall patterns and increased instances of extreme weather, we turn to our indigenous knowledge for guidance. We’ve learned how to adapt our farming techniques, manage water resources, and live in harmony with our surroundings.
Preserving indigenous wisdom is not just about protecting the past; it’s about ensuring our resilience in the future. It’s about learning from the land and our ancestors and finding innovative ways to address the challenges of today.
