“Culture is essential to indigenous identity. Indigenous cultures are based on the concepts of respect for others, self-humility and mutual support for one another.

The dignity of all peoples and maintenance of cultural integrity are the principles that bind communities together and ensure harmonious relationships.” – Excerpts from “Asia Indigenous Peoples’ Perspective on Development”
