Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples, is delighted to announce the winning entries for its 2021 calendar photo competition.

Open to amateurs and professionals alike, the competition called for entries on the theme of “Resilience and Pride.” It aims to celebrate photography as a powerful medium for raising awareness of tribal peoples.

The winning image is by Yoeme, A:shiwi, and Rarámuri photographer Tomás Karmelo Amaya, depicting matriarchs from various backgrounds and tribal affiliations gathering in a tipi for a women’s meeting. The photo was taken at the resistance camp against the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota, on the ancestral homelands of the Očeti Šakówiŋ.
