The use of telehealth is growing as an auxiliary tool for urbanized societies in the propagation of teaching and health care for Indigenous communities. However, little has been discussed regarding the potential applicability as an instrument for the propagation of Indigenous cultural traditions that positively impact the health and well-being of their communities, whose organizational habits influence the containment of climate change, or be it, conditions that favor the global health of the planet. The methodology that was used to choose which practices would be analyzed was based on the systematization carried out in 2019 by the United Nations. Articles published in the last five years were selected in order to ensure that the discussion would be guided by contemporary perspectives. We sought to enumerate some of the consequences that climate change may have for different social groups over the coming few decades and to report the agricultural practices of Brazilian Indigenous peoples, who apply sustainable methodologies in their daily lives, with habits that have been passed down from generation to generation. These practices could be propagated to urbanized industrial communities by means of the multiplication of an original telehealth program created and transmitted by Indigenous peoples, based on their millenary knowledge about sustainable community health.
