Two Organizations Devoted to the Preservation of Tribal Peoples
Cultural Survival, founded in 1972, "is a recognized leader in educational and communication forums that advocate the rights, voice and vision of indigenous peoples. We believe that indigenous peoples should be able to determine their own futures on their own lands. Through our website and publications, student conferences and educational outreach, we draw attention to the issues confronting indigenous peoples, and promote the cause of self determination. Cultural Survival's projects emphasize the need to build partnerships with and between indigenous peoples and our program serves as a means of proindigenous advocacy and action that is currently lacking on the world scene. It provides important and, above all, carefully analyzed information that is used by indigenous and nonindigenous peoples in the discussion of some of the vital questions of the coming century: the possibility of reconciling economic development and human rights in an era of globalizing capitalism; the prospects for multiculturalism in pluriethnic societies; and the rethinking of the twentieth century state."
The Friends of Peoples Close to Nature "is a movement of groups and individuals, concerned with the survival of Tribal peoples and their culture, in particular hunter-gatherers. These were the first and are the last societies on earth to have a non-exploitative relationship with the natural word. Our task is to help them preserve their unique cultures from enforced assimilation, alien religions, the ideologies of 'progress' and 'growth' and absorption into the global economy."
We believe both these organizations are worthy of your support. Learn more at their websites.
