Mission: We help tribal peoples protect their lives, lands and human rights. We oppose the racist attitudes which underpin the way tribal peoples are viewed, and seek to stop the illegal and unjust way they are treated. We work to change racist attitudes towards, and false beliefs about, tribal peoples. Our vision is to foster an understanding of, and respect for, tribal peoples and the choices they make about their futures. We catalyze a growing alliance of people around the world who support tribal peoples and their rights, and turn it into effective action.

After becoming a religious studies major in university, I started developing a strong interest in the traditions and cultures of native and ancient peoples the world over. And after years of research and study in cultural anthropology and the ways and spiritual beliefs of native and ancient peoples from around the globe I have become convinced that these peoples and their way of life are the only link we have to a truly balanced and harmonic state of being. One that brings us into a healthy equilibrium with the surrounding environment, within ourselves, and with the collective whole of humanity. Survival International is one of the few organizations around that takes it upon themselves to make sure we do not lose this ever more tenuous connection. They help, assist, and defend cultures and peoples, who in today's modern world have virtually no voice of their own. And they do so in a manner that is highly efficient, organized, and effective. I am incredibly thankful for everything that they do, and will without a doubt be a life time supporter of their efforts. They are doing a great service to not only the peoples, tribes, and communities they aim to directly support and sustain through their efforts but to the whole of humanity.

Appreciate Survival International USA's ability to contribute to the indigenous people of countries meaningful to me, that are a part of my heritage, like Sweden and Canada. Americans devastated their indigenous tribal culture. It's the least we can do to help those that still exist in these modern times. Sincerely, Elaine Anderson
