This festival is an initiative to support an independent indigenous movement. All funds collected will be directed to the National Indigenous Congress in Mexico, an autonomous space where originary peoples can find shared thought and solidarity with their own forms of organisation, representation and decision-making. All events are free, with a suggested donation of £3.
