Cultural Survival

A new law in Panama makes it easier for foreign companies to destroy the rainforest homelands of the Ngöbe People. We can help them stop it. Learn more about this and other Global Response Campaigns.

Over the past 37 years, Cultural Survival has worked in dozens of countries around the world, both in on-the-ground projects and the advocacy campaigns of our Global Response program.

About Us: For nearly 40 years Cultural Survival has partnered with Indigenous Peoples around the world to help them defend their lands, languages, and cultures. 

Our work is predicated on the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

We publicize their issues through our award-winning publications, we mount letter-writing campaigns and other advocacy efforts to stop environmental destruction and abuses of Native Peoples’ rights, and we work on the ground in Indigenous communities, always at their invitation. Our board of directors includes some of the world’s preeminent Indigenous leaders, and our staff, headed by a renowned human rights lawyer, includes both Indigenous and non-Indigenous members. Our headquarters is in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and we have satellite offices in Guatemala and Colorado. Cultural Survival has received a four-star rating from Charity Navigator for outstanding fiscal responsibility, and we have consultative status with the United Nations.

The most important member of our team is you. None of our work would be possible without our members. Please make a donation to become a member today.
