Keynote Topics

At the age of 9, Sarah Begum learned about deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest and at 21, she followed her childhood dream to embark on an adventure in the jungle where she lives with the Huaorani tribe, hunting and gathering with warriors and was initiated by the tribe as Queen and married to a warrior to create an alliance and spread the message about protecting their land from exploitation.

 

Sarah talks about her adventure, the Huaorani men and women’s roles in the jungles, their traditional tasks from hunting to weaving and the various species of plants and animals which play a big part in their daily lives. 

Sarah survived the ‘Murder Capital of the World’ where she was a News Anchor for a government channel turned undercover journalist to expose the injustice in the country.

She lived like a local in a dictatorship suffering from hyperinflation, high crime rates, four different exchange rates including the black market, shortage of essential products and survived the system and the streets her own tactical way.

 

She talks about life in Caracas for the everyday resident from the teacher to the lawyer, the student to the expat. 

 

Road Trip Through Native America’s 

Sarah Begum embarked on an epic road trip through 18 states in the Mid West, USA in search of Native American culture and heritage. Sarah shares stories from various Natives she met at the Pow Wow which shaped her decision to explore more.

 

She takes us on a journey through the USA from the bull fighters trying to make a living in the Navajo reservation, the alcoholics looking for better paid jobs to the historic Trail of Tears, which ended at Fort Gibson – one of the places Sarah was given special access to archive letters and an abandoned hospital used for the cavalry at the time.

 

Sarah gives us insight into the unique cultures of each of the tribes from their creation theory to their symbolic dances and the current issues they are faced with.
