Survival International is an important voice for the members of tribal communities who have become more and more vulnerable to abuse and exploitation by outsiders. Survival International’s work to protect and preserve the identity, lands, and traditional ways of life of tribal peoples includes educating us of their rights as a people and to the resources found on their lands and territories on which they depend for their economic, spiritual, cultural, and physical well-being. After showing Survival International’s film on uncontacted tribes to my 6th grade class, I was so proud to discover that my students realized our duty to safeguard the integrity of the members of tribal peoples. My students asked me to thank everyone at Survival International for your outstanding work! Thank you!

Survival International plays such a major role in advocating for an issue that is largely unrepresented in mainstream discussions. The organization takes a highly ethical stance on who they will and will not accept funding from and in allowing access to all of their materials to any interested parties. The work that they do should not go unnoticed. We need more compassionate and committed individuals like the employees of Survival International.

Survival International is a bold and unique international tribal rights organization. Though they've been around for decades, their US office seems to be pretty new and I'm excited for the future of Survival International USA. I love their website and social media outreach. They do a fantastic job at engaging and promoting important issues around the world.

Survival International USA is an important non-profit with a unique mission. The organization shines a light on the plight of indigenous populations and advocates for their rights. They are excellent advocates and activists. I wish there were more people and organizations committed to this cause.

Survival International USA website is loaded with great photos and information about indigenous tribes. So poignant. These tribes have little chance of preserving their lands and not being taken advantage of by corporations interested in the natural resources. I wish more countries would sign the International Law to protect the native lands. I'm glad to be informed and see that this non-profit has engaged in on the indigenous people's behalf. Dawn

The tribal peoples of the world are among the most voiceless, and Survival is their conduit to the rest of the world. As an educator and a human rights activist, I am moved by their stories and stimulated to act to prevent their disappearance from our planet. It offers a wealth of information and resources. Survival helps to educate the rest of the world about these dignified and extraordinary peoples; indeed, we have much to learn from them. Survivor helps us do just that. Mary Jo Kwiatek

Survival sheds light on the problems facing tribal peoples in a way that no other organization does. They give a voice to an extremely under-represented group of people. It is overall an amazing organization!
