Makushi Wellbeing

 

Paulette Allicock 

Paulette Allicock is the coordinator of the Makushi Research Unit, an indigenous research group set up by the Iwokrama International Centre, Guyana.

She has been working in the area of social monitoring for the last 15 years, and in addition to her life as a member of a Makushi community, her work has given her exposure to many different ‘Rupununi’ lifestyles through household interviews.

She will be speaking on wellbeing in the North Rupununi, how perceptions are changing and how this is affecting the Makushi environment.
