Premier Screening of Whaledreamers in Canberra
I would like to inform you that Encuentro and friends are organising three dynamic activities throughout Canberra. The events will celebrate indegenous cultures of our fragile world, whilst helping raise awareness and funds towards the wellbeing of indigenous communities in Altai.
Altai is known as the “Pearl of Asia” and is situated in the middle of Euroasia. Its rugged beauty, diverse ecosystems and the local indigenous people of the Altai Republic are under threat from Russian land reforms. Help over 80,000 indigenous people protect their way of life and their ancestral lands.
