Survival is an international organization supporting tribal peoples worldwide, founded in 1969 after an article by Norman Lewis in the UK’s Sunday Times which highlighted the massacres, land thefts and genocide taking place in Brazilian Amazonia. Like many modern atrocities, the racist oppression of Brazil’s Indians took place in the name of ‘economic growth’. Today, Survival has supporters in 82 countries. It works for tribal peoples’ rights in three complementary ways: education, advocacy and campaigns. It also offers tribal people themselves a platform to address the world. survival works closely with local indigenous organizations, and focus on tribal peoples who have the most to lose, usually those most recently in contact with the outside world.
