What Are Virtual Indigenous Kingdoms?

Virtual indigenous kingdoms are online groups for indigenous or traditional kingdoms all over the world. Virtual indigenous kingdoms are created on the ICERMediation App. These virtual kingdoms are created and managed by the offices of traditional rulers or indigenous leaders in different countries around the world. 

The purpose of virtual indigenous kingdoms is to facilitate the preservation and transmission of indigenous cultures, traditions, languages, and customs to the younger and future generations both abroad (within the diaspora) and in their home countries.

ICERMediation is working with traditional rulers and indigenous leaders to create their virtual indigenous kingdoms on the ICERMediation App where their cultures, customs, languages, and traditions will be preserved and transmitted from generation to generation. In addition, ICERMediation App will help traditional rulers and indigenous leaders to connect with their people in the diaspora and those in their home countries.

Immigrants and their descendants in the United States and other countries are looking for a better technology to connect with the cultures, customs, languages, and traditions of their ancestors. We built ICERMediation web and mobile application to solve this problem.

We will be providing access and support to the offices of traditional rulers and indigenous leaders so they can create their virtual indigenous kingdoms on ICERMediation App, invite their people to join, and regularly post content or information about their cultures, customs, languages, and traditions. These could be videos, audios, photos, documents, posts, and so on. Traditional rulers and indigenous leaders will be able to connect with their people in the diaspora and those in their home countries within their virtual indigenous kingdoms.

The technology provides an opportunity for them to schedule their events, send emails or notifications to all their people, just like what a Town Crier used to do in those days. In addition, their people will stay up to date with their cultures, customs, languages, traditions, festivals, celebrations, etc., and also connect with one another.

This is the best way to not only preserve and transfer indigenous cultures, customs, languages, and traditions to the younger and future generations, but to also promote them to the rest of the world. ICERMediation provides a unique opportunity for traditional rulers and indigenous leaders as well as their people to tell their own stories and make their voices heard globally. By having a one-stop-shop technology for indigenous kingdoms worldwide, our traditional institutions will become easily accessible, and will no longer be ignored by the International Community.

The idea for virtual indigenous kingdoms creation came from the 5th Annual International Conference on Ethnic and Religious Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding. The theme of the conference was Traditional Systems of Conflict Resolution. The conference was held at Queens College, City University of New York, from October 30 to November 1, 2018. The publication inspired by this conference is available on this page: Traditional Systems and Practices of Conflict Resolution.

The initial idea was to establish the World Elders Forum, an international forum for traditional rulers and indigenous leaders.

The traditional rulers and indigenous leaders present at this conference unanimously agreed to establish the World Elders Forum in order to harmonize the efforts of traditional rulers and indigenous leaders worldwide in promoting global peace and security.

Below is the communiqué released by the traditional rulers and indigenous leaders who attended our 5th annual conference.

  • Knowing that the traditional rulers and indigenous leaders are the custodians of peace at the grassroots levels;
  • Given that the traditional rulers and indigenous leaders have been historically marginalized from participation in international discussions on peace and security;
  • We the traditional rulers and indigenous leaders present at the 5thAnnual International Conference on Ethnic and Religious Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding held at Queens College, City University of New York, from October 30 to November 1, 2018 have unanimously agreed to create the World Elders Forum to harmonize the efforts of traditional rulers and indigenous leaders from countries around the world in promoting global peace and security;
  • As an organ of the International Center for Ethno-Religious Mediation, the World Elders Forum will synergize our efforts to draw attention to the plights of indigenous peoples worldwide and help strengthen our capacity for conflict resolution;
  • On this day, November 1, 2018, we hereby pledge our support to this end, and affirm that His Royal Majesty King Bubaraye Dakolo, Agada IV, Ibenanaowei of Ekpetiama Kingdom, Bayelsa State of Nigeria, has been unanimously elected to serve as the Interim Chair of the World Elders Forum.
