Survival International


We are the global movement for Indigenous and tribal peoples' rights.


Indigenous peoples are the best guardians of biodiversity - 80% of the world’s biodiversity is found in Indigenous territories. Except the people looking after nature are often attacked and abused, for mining, ranching, conservation and more.

In the case of #UncontactedTribes , their very survival is at risk if their lands aren’t protected from invasion. But where they’re able to live self-sufficiently, they thrive.

We’re collaborating with FairPlanet to bring you this new video to highlight the importance of standing with #UncontactedTribes .

Share and sign the pledge today: uncontactedtribes.org

Jorge, an #Indigenous Murunahua man from Peru, lost an eye to a shot by loggers on his first contact. Here he recalls the tragedy that followed.

This is just one example of the terrible threats facing Peru's #UncontactedTribes - threats that would intensify if the genocidal bill 3518 is passed. It's a blatant violation of uncontacted peoples' land rights.

Uncontacted tribes are the most vulnerable peoples on the planet and depend on their territory for survival. Without their lands, they're being condemned to certain extermination.

In India’s famous Nagarhole National Park, Adivasi #Indigenous people continue to protest against their rights being stripped away with the creation of tiger reserves and Protected Areas on their lands.

Evicting tribal people from their ancestral lands is not only wrong, it’s against international law. Survival stands with Indigenous communities against abuses in the name of “conservation”.

“The Nukak will always fight for our family. A big and terrible struggle”. 🗣️

Alex Tinyú, an
#Indigenous Nukak person from #Colombia , recalls the story of when his people were forced out of their #forest more than 30 years ago.

The Nukak’s territory was invaded by missionaries, coca growers, settlers and armed groups. After contact, more than half of their people died from disease and violence.

Today, the Nukak survive on the fringes of their territory, affected by severe malnutrition and malaria, and victims of sexual exploitation and drug addiction.

✊ But the Nukak are still fighting to return safely to their ancestral territory and to be able to thrive again as a self-sufficient people.

Listen to Alex’s story and then take action for the Nukak now 👉https://svlint.org/Nukak-EN-TT (link in bio)

Soni Sori fights for Adivasi (Indigenous) rights in #India .

Last year on #WomensDay we released a report about how Adivasi women like Soni Sori are brutalized for their resistance. You can read their stories here: svlint.org/Brutalized_For_Resistance

It’s #InternationalWomensDay on March 8!

We’re sharing the stories of just a few of the Indigenous women fighting for change ✊

Máxima Acuña, an Indigenous woman from #Peru , took a stand against a mining corporation and won.
Have you ever thought about the term “wilderness”?

Well, it might be about time… the whole idea of “wilderness”, in the sense of pristine
#nature untouched by humans, is a colonial myth.

The idea of “wilderness” has its roots in the US in the late 19th century, whereby the agency of #Native Americans in creating diverse landscapes over millennia was expunged, to be replaced with the idea that “nature’” (and God) had formed these lands which white colonists were now charged with protecting.

“Wilderness” portrays the land only as “nature”, rather than a lived and managed landscape in which people play a fundamental part. Conservationists often describe forests as pristine so they can carry on with the creation of Protected Areas without the consent of local people, claiming nobody is living there.
Despite the massive obstacles they face, #Indigenous people around the world are fighting for their rights, their lands & their lives.
