Join Couchsurfing to see Adriano’s full profile. It’s free!
Not really a mission, but I guess just be me, be free and be the best I can be (and be to others).
I'm passionate about indigenous education. I live in Australia and this is most of my life out there. I love being active, but also chilling in a hammock just watching the world go by. I love going out and meeting people, but also having those important and rejuvenating quiet moments. Food (the look, preparation and eating of) is a big part of who I am...but I believe we could all consume a little bit less and so, be a little bit kinder to the earth :)
Treat people like you wish to be treated.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
If this means how I can help out in a house, then I can clean, cook, dig and build.
None yet - just started
Love meeting people, learning about languages and cultures, dancing (from 70s to Salsa) and of course...travelling.
Language rights and Indigenous rights and as a result, all rights (especially special needs', women's).
Music, Movies, and Books
Music: Chill, classical, funk, salsa and groups/people like Adele, Coldplay, Radiohead...
Books: ones that help me know a little more about the world, about others and myself.
Movies: Cinema Paradiso, Cyrano De Bergerac, Stir Crazy, The Prestige, Dark Knight, the list goes on and gets sillier.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Not really comfortable publicly saying that I've done this thing or that, but I guess it's good to be aware of the great things that we do.
Most amazing thing I've seen? Too many to list, from the so-called little things in life to Ausangate mountain in Peru and to my best friends getting married.
Teach, Learn, Share
Everyone has the right to speak and be taught in their own ancestral language. These are rights many of us enjoy and even take for granted, but aren't offered to many groups of people just because of who they are (and who they are not). Children are especially affected by this. Many indigenous children will have to go to a school where there ways of being and speaking are not accepted. This can have a negative impact on how they learn the new language and culture which impacts on their future lives and their communities.
