Events

A key element of NAILSMA's work is bringing together Indigenous people, ranger groups and organisations to share knowledge and experiences, particularly the intergenerational transfer of Indigenous Knowledge.

NAILSMA is also involved in developing leadership and intergenerational skills by recognising the many levels of leadership and knowledge in Indigenous communities and supporting and promoting that leadership.

You will find information about important meetings, forums and other events supported or hosted by NAILSMA here.
