A portion of revenues from our offerings goes to support Survival International

What Survival International Does:

We fight for tribal peoples’ survival. We stop loggers, miners, and oil companies from destroying tribal lands, lives and livelihoods across the globe. We lobby governments to recognise indigenous land rights. We document and expose the atrocities committed against tribal people and take direct action to stop them.

We give tribal peoples a platform to speak to the world. We’ve had over 200 victories since 1969, but our work is far from over and we need your help.

Why We Chose To Support Survival International

If an organization is not about something bigger than profits it's missing an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of future generations to come.  We believe that tribal people of the world are the last line of defense between the increasingly lost wisdom of the Great Mother and modern day societies obscured values. Values of self-aggrandisement, un-satiable consumerism, fame, objectification of the feminine, worship of money, power and a general misalignment of our connection to ourselves and our relationship to other animals and Nature. We want to support men, women and children who are not interested in "our" version of progress.   Who are content with the life they live on the land they own.  We want to support and give them a voice and autonomy in their existence.  We want to help bring their wisdom into a society incredibly void of reverence for the Great Mother.

HISTORY

We were founded in 1969 by a group of people appalled by the genocide of Amazon Indians detailed in a Sunday Times exposé.

For several years, we had little or no income and were run by volunteers. We published information about tribal peoples’ problems, supported projects in their communities, and lobbied for their rights in international forums like the UN.

But quickly it became apparent that the only way to ensure the continued survival of tribal peoples was also to catalyse a groundswell of public opinion in their favour.

That’s ultimately how all progressive movements foster lasting change, from

stopping the slave trade two centuries ago, to destroying South African apartheid.

 

From our humble beginnings, our thousands of supporters around the world elevated our struggle to a global movement, with hundreds of concrete successes in the field.

The movement has radically altered the outlook for tribal peoples in many parts of the world.
