Experience an Indigenous Mexican response to climate change. TOTEM LATAMAT will travel by boat from Mexico to the UK to tour different locations, including our museum, before its final stop at COP26!

“Latamat” means “life”. The totem emphasises how deeply our existence is interwoven with nature, calls attention to the damage being done to the seas, the land and the air, and insists that we cannot ignore this destruction any longer.

Indigenous stories offer important persectives, a call to action, and make us think about our relationship with nature
