Tribal Link Foundation was founded in 1993. The starting point of Tribal Link is that the world’s traditional peoples must survive. This can happen with the help of the modern, which is also the primary threat to their existence. Tribal Link matches the urgent needs of the world’s indigenous populations with the people and resources that can help them.
Tribal Link is a non-governmental organization (NGO) in association with the Department of Public Information (DPI) at the United Nations and in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
Since 1993, Tribal Link has been working to support the world’s indigenous peoples by:
• Organizing events, forums and hospitality programs that provide enriching cross-cultural exchanges
• Mobilizing media professionals to publicize issues critical to traditional peoples
• Coordinating capacity building workshops focusing on indigenous peoples’ participation within the international system.
• Ensuring that the vital contribution of indigenous spiritual knowledge included in major UN events.
