A Tribal Spotlight in Luxembourg
mercredi 29 mai 2019 à 04:00
AEIN will host two events in Luxembourg next week focussing on the Adivasis - an indigenous community of India : A film-screening and a lunch debate.
Block your calendars for two interesting events hosted by Aide à l’Enfance de l’Inde et du Népal (AEIN) next week - offering a deep insight into the indigenous cultures of the Adivasis of Jharkhand.
Film-Screening : Johar Welcome to our World
On Wednesday, 5th June 2019 at 19h00, there will be a screening of the film Johar : Welcome to our World followed by a Q & A session with the film-maker Nilanjan Bhattacharya.
The film is a must for those interested in food-cultures from around the world, especially since this one focusses on the unique relationship the adivasis (tribals) have with their forests for food. The film documents traditional recipes, the medicinal qualities of various herbs, weeds and fruits and the traditional knowledge of their sustainable management by the adivasis. The film also lays emphasis on how mindless, aggressive development and skewed conservation policies have damaged the tribals’ relationship with their land and pushed them deeper into food insecurity.
The screening is free and take place at :
Oekozenter Pafendall asbl 6, rue Vauban L-2663 Luxembourg
Date : 5/6/2019, 7pm

Lunch Debate : Indigenous Communities in Modern Society : A Focus on the Adivasis of India
On Thursday, 6th June 2019 at 12H15, CITIM and AEIN will host a discussion with Indian film-maker Nilanjan Bhattacharya on indigenous communities in Modern Society - throwing focus on the adivasis (tribals) of India.
Across the world, indigenous people continue to fight battles for basic rights and still lose a lot. They live in marginalisation and struggle to keep their own unique culture alive against the mainstream culture of the country they are in.
All are invited to this lunch debate to discuss the situation of indigenous people with a focus on the situation in India. You can add to the discussion with your expertise and knowledge on indigenous people from other parts of the world.
Nilanjan Bhattacharya will show us clips from his movie “Johar – Welcome to our world” – a film about Adivasi food culture – to elaborate insights on the adivasis of India.
The debate is free to attend and you can bring your lunch with you !
Venue : CITIM, 55 Avenue de la Liberté L-1931 Luxemburg (near the mainstation)
Date : 06/06/19,12.15pm to 1.30pm
