Eagle and the Condor: Indigenous Alliances for Youth Leadership Development
Wihak, Christine; Hately, Lynne; Allicock, Sydney; Lickers, Michael
Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education, v1 n2 p135-148 Apr 2007
This narrative describes the growth of an alliance between two indigenous organizations in North and South America, illustrating how a shared indigenous vision of cultural survival and connection to the land led to the creation of an ongoing collaboration for indigenous youth leadership development, which has extended to encompass collaboration with other South American and Caribbean indigenous groups. Allowing organizational relationships to emerge from naturally occurring personal relationships was vital for success. Mutuality of the exchange was key in developing a partnership of equals. Visits to each others' territories, internal stability of the organizations, sound financial arrangements, and the contribution from other aspects of organizational activities to the alliance were also necessary ingredients for strength and continuity.
