Mapping local knowledge to regenerate lands in climate-changed times - From Poverty to Power
his photo story explores how indigenous Tharakan people from central Kenya are reviving their customary laws, natural sites, indigenous seeds and the life of their territory in climate-changed times. It tells the process of mapping their local knowledge to forge paths and build alliances in their struggle to protect their cultures and lands. This process was led by SALT and accompanied and documented by Gaia foundation.

From 30th September to 5th October 2019, this group with ancestral roots in Tharaka territory came together to document their knowledge using eco-cultural maps and calendars. First developed by Indigenous communities in the Colombian Amazon over thirty years ago, these maps and calendars are ‘talking tools’. Making them through a collective process supports communities to discuss, debate and develop shared understandings of how their territories and governance systems functioned in the past, the cultural and ecological losses and challenges of the present, and a shared vision of the future....

The ancestral calendars, drawn by seed custodians, mainly women, reveal how the seasons cycled through Tharaka Territory in the past. Deconstructing the imposed Gregorian Calendar, brought to Africa during colonisation, the calendar depicts the four traditional seasons in the Tharakan year and reveals the changes in weather, constellations, ecosystems and human rhythms that took place in each. The ancestral calendar shows a predictable, regular cycle free from climactic extremes, such as long dry spells....

Having mapped their memory of their ancestral land, the group began the task of developing a shared picture of the present. This process enables communities to develop a comparative analysis with the past, identifying and debating positive and negative changes that have taken place. Elders discussed the devastating, intertwined erosion of culture and nature they have observed in their territory since colonisation and the neoliberal structural adjustment and globalisation that followed independence....

Having made a painful comparison between the past and present, the group gathered in Tharaka began the process of drawing a map and calendar of the future. The future map and calendar evoke aspirational visions that can help the community agree upon and distil the actions that will be necessary to revive their territories and traditions. They also affirm the steps the community has already been taking towards revival by revitalising indigenous seeds and foods, sacred natural sites rituals, songs, dances and traditional dress through community dialogues....

Tharaka’s future map depicts the restoration of sacred natural sites as a matter of urgency. The return of year-round rivers to the territory, reforestation and the migration of wildlife back into the territory from Meru National Park to the north are all revealed as community priorities. A revival of climate-critical ecosystems is anticipated, while roads, schools, health centres and other new features from the present map remain in the territory....

The community can use their finished maps and calendars as a basis for developing their ‘Life Path’, a longer journey, and for advocacy. These collective documents provide the factual basis for the community and their allies to press for recognition of their Indigenous rights, natural sites and territories, and the customary laws and governance systems that protect them....

Following in the footsteps of allies in Uganda and Kenya, community efforts to revive ecological knowledge, governance and ecosystems through dialogues, maps and calendars are beginning or underway in Benin, Zimbabwe, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Cameroon, Ethiopia and beyond.

These communities are being accompanied by Earth Jurisprudence (EJ) Practitioners – graduates of Gaia’s Trainings for Transformation. Their work combines community animation with collective efforts to secure greater recognition of customary governance systems for the protection of sacred natural sites and the territories of indigenous peoples, at regional and international levels....

Nderi and Salome’s presentation affirmed that the customary laws they are reviving stem from the Earth herself and that they must be respected under the African Charter’s call for African States to acknowledge Africa’s pluri-legal systems.
