Tenth session of the Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goal


The compilation is the product of submissions made by members of the UN inter-agency technical support team (TST). It is an unofficial compilation intended solely for information for information of the OWG and Member States. Given the very large number of existing intergovernmental commitments, the compilation is of necessity not exhaustive or complete. As more information is received, the compilation will be updated.

Tribal Link Foundation’s Year End Update. Please donate to help us continue our work.

Project Access 2013 Participants at United Nations Headquarters


Greetings friends:

Since 1992 Tribal Link Foundation has served Indigenous Peoples from around the world with the philosophy that Indigenous Peoples must speak for themselves; they must not be spoken for. We remain firm in our position that a communities’ work on the ground is best supported by facilitating the linkages that indigenous communities themselves see as necessary. Your continued support via donations makes this possible.

This past year was an exciting one as we continued, with your help, to proudly support Indigenous Peoples’ educational pursuits, their effective participation in international meetings that affect their rights, and facilitate linkages to international markets to further local entrepreneurial endeavors.

Tuwe Huni Kuin at the UN General Assembly in 2013

 Some of our work highlights are featured in our December newsletter and include   success stories such as our Indigenous Fellowship Program with  Tuwe Huni Kuin from Brazil, our groundbreaking work with the Natural Resources Stewardship Circle, our cornerstone training program Project Access, and our Girls Education Program in Kenya and Tanzania. I trust these programs convey the significance of Indigenous Peoples’ cultures and concerns, and Tribal Link’s commitment to provide access to the resources they need to reach their fullest potential. Tribal Link is one of the few organizations of its kind, unique in the comprehensive services we provide to ensure indigenous communities’ success in their work on their own terms.

 You can make a difference in the lives of Indigenous Peoples by supporting our work in 2014. Please consider donating online ( or by check (to Tribal Link 109 West 28th Street New York, NY 10001). All contributions are tax deductible and are directly applied to program costs.

From the Tribal Link family to yours, we wish you all a very happy holiday season and a prosperous new year. Thank you again for your generous support.


Pamela Kraft,

Executive Director

Walking Tour with Author Evan Pritchard

  Saturday, November 2nd, 2013, noon   Side Tours of New York

Meeting at: #1 Bowling Green, at the foot of Broadway, Lower Manhattan

Bowling Green: An Algonquin Place of Power, a  three hour “experience” guided by Evan Pritchard.

For registration, see  (all registration must be on line, $30)

Side Tours is one of the hottest trends of the year. New York Times calls Side Tours “a means to enlightenment,” and  asks: “What do you do in New York once you tire of the bar scene? If you are just the right amount of curious, adventurous or even a touch voyeuristic, you might sign up for a Side Tour.”

Side Tours of New York is    happy to sponsor three “experiences” of lower Manhattan with author Evan Pritchard, starting on November 2nd at noon. In this event, Evan will guide a small group of adventuresome explorers on a journey into the past to experience “Kapsee,” (“Point of Rocks”) now called Bowling  Green, in many ways the Native American heart of Manhattan (“Rocky Island”).  We will feel the unique power of the land here, and bear witness to countless struggles for power that occurred in this village, and are still occurring to this day, all the while performing indigenous rituals to bless and heal the city that has grown from this troubled  and legendary “anchor” spot. See for more information.
