The second ITM event was held in Shillong (Meghalaya, India) in 2015 and was hosted by the Khasi indigenous communities. Over 600 delegates representing indigenous communities, academia, youth, UN agencies and donors from 62 countries participated in three days of conferences addressing the rights of indigenous peoples. The result of the discussions held over these days was summarized in the so-called “Shillong Declaration.” On the final day thousands of visitors were invited to participate in a festival celebrating indigenous foods and voices through cooking demonstrations, handicraft, music and dancing.
