We are Survival, the global movement for tribal peoples’ rights. We’re the only organization that champions tribal peoples around the world. We help them defend their lives, protect their lands and determine their own futures.
We exist to prevent the annihilation of tribal peoples and to give them a platform to speak to the world so they can bear witness to the genocidal violence, slavery and racism they face on a daily basis. By lobbying the powerful we help defend the lives, lands and futures of people who should have the same rights as other contemporary societies.
A world where tribal peoples are respected as contemporary societies and their human rights protected.
Since Survival started in 1969 hundreds of thousands of people in over one hundred countries around the world have supported our campaigns. Here are just some of the public figures who have contributed to our work.
