Young Explorer joins INDIS to highlight stories of Indigenous youth


The INDIS team are excited to welcome Markus Martinez Burman to join the project. Markus, from Mexico and Sweden and of Indigenous Juchitec descent, has won a prestigious National Geographic Young Explorer grant that will add an important dimension to the ongoing community-driven research. His project aims to raise the stories of Monkoxi youth in Lomerio, Bolivia through photography and storytelling and share their own visions of the future and sustainable ways of living while also trying to strengthen young leaders within their community.
