Conference: Science and Ancestral Knowledge of Indigenous Peoples

Monday November 04, 2019
EU-LAC Foundation

The Embassy of Guatemala in Germany, in cooperation with the Honorary Consulate of Guatemala in Hamburg and the EU-LAC Foundation, is pleased to invite you to the conference "Science and Ancestral Knowledge of Indigenous Peoples", which will take place on 4 November at 6 p.m. in the facilities of the EU-LAC Foundation. 

H.E. José Francisco Calí Tzay, Guatemalan Ambassador to Germany, will offer us a new perspective on the knowledge of indigenous communities, often confused with "customs" or "empirical knowledge". These "customs" include complex time management in the form of calendars, the use of zero in mathematics and advanced knowledge of food and medicine from nature.
