Secretary-General says media and #SocialMedia empowers indigenous voices #WorldIndigenousPeoplesDay

Secretary- General Ban Ki-moon

International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples

Empowering Indigenous Voices

“In the five years since the adoption of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, communities and individuals have been taking advantage of the reach of traditional and new media to tell their story and make their voices heard.

The focus of this year’s International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples is “Indigenous Media, Empowering Indigenous Voices”.  From community radio and television to feature films and documentaries, from video art and newspapers to the internet and social media, indigenous peoples are using these powerful tools to challenge mainstream narratives, bring human rights violations to international attention and forge global solidarity. 

They are also developing their own media to reflect indigenous values and fight against myths and misconceptions.

Empowering Indigenous Voices

Indigenous voices are recounting compelling stories of how they are combating centuries of injustice and discrimination, and advocating for the resources and rights that will preserve their cultures, languages, spirituality and traditions.  They offer an alternative perspective on development models that exclude the indigenous experience.  They promote the mutual respect and intercultural understanding that is a precondition for a society without poverty and prejudice.

On this International Day, I pledge the full support of the UN system to cooperate with indigenous peoples, including their media, to promote the full implementation of the Declaration.  I also call on Member States and the mainstream media to create and maintain opportunities for indigenous peoples to articulate their perspectives, priorities and aspirations.

Let us use the media – indigenous and non-indigenous, and especially new outlets to create bridges and establish a truly intercultural world, where diversity is celebrated; a world where different cultures not only coexist but value each other for their contributions and potential.”

Ode To Social Media 2012 by Gaye Crispin

“We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams, wandering by lone sea-breakers, and sitting by desolate streams..”

Ode’ by Arthur O’Shaughnessy, 1874.

Ode To Social Media

(To be read with a strong Australian drawl.)

This Social Media, I really must ask,

Are you in with both feet, or hoping it’s a fad that’ll pass?

Strong business demands that its leader be bold,

With an agile mind … that makes impossibilities unfold.

So are you on  Twitter? It’s fun and it’s free.

Facebook and Google+ ?  There’s no more, “To be or not to be?!”

LinkedIn hosts your perfect résumé.

While Instagram , Flickr  or Tumblr share your pic of the day.

YouTube gives the latest in both news and song,

And BlogTalk Radio keeps you company all the day long.

Your  Xeeme EAv and Klout

Are designed to let you know your own whereabouts.

Hansel and Gretel would find their way home quite safely today,

With TomTom , NAVMAN or Foursquare holding their hands all the way.

Big thanks to Matt Mullenweg of WordPress fame,

Who’s made Gutenberg and Caxton rock and roll in their graves.

WordPress is so green, its almost sea-blue,

Because no trees are hurt when sharing news or blogs with you.

Wikipedia‘s for info and people who love to learn.

Then there’s eBay  for the people who are looking  to earn.

You can use G+, Skype or VCalls  to chat  with your friends,

And because it’s free it doesn’t matter if your chatting never ends.

Large or small platforms….  whatever you require.

Private clubs or niche communities serving every desire.

It’s all here online….  and you don’t have to pay,

So I’m really quite flummoxed as to why any business would stay away!


Because Hide-&-Seek’s a game only non-liners* play,

Falsely believing this online craze is a fad that’ll soon fade away.

Crush It  or crash it.  Disengage or Engage.

End Of Business as Usual! … Hell! It’s Social Media age!

Life is change – change is life…. old, make way for new!

Just one question….very simple… “Where online can I find you ?”

By Gaye Crispin

Ode To Social Media 2012 

*non-liners is a word I made up for businesses that aren’t online…yet.


Hi, I’m Gaye Crispin, a fair-trade chocolate-loving, coffee-drinking, blog-loving, fruit & veg loving, life-loving, enthusiastic,  business strategist, business owner and social media student.

I have a passion to help women entrepreneurs help other women entrepreneurs around globe. I also love reading books and meeting people. I love anything to do with looking after the planet, preserving wilderness and natural habitats, and helping spread the word about the importance of supporting our organic farms.

I am also very interested in supporting  aquaponics research and projects,  as I see them as a viable and sustainable food production system, especially for countries where energy costs and water shortages are a serious consideration.

I believe fresh water preservation and conservation to be a serious concern that demands more attention, and is an important conversation we need to open up with our children, and for and on behalf of our children.
