Venezuela's indigenous university

Community creates institution to train leaders and preserve its culture in face of increasing marginalisation.

    Venezuela's indigenous groups have traditionally been economically and politically marginalised.

    They have lost ancestral lands and fear their heritage will disappear as community members leave to find better livelihoods.

    But one group in the south is fighting back by creating a university for indigenous leaders.
