Tebtebba Foundation (Indigenous Peoples' Centre for Policy Research and Education)
Tebtebba is an indigenous peoples' organization and a research, education, policy advocacy and resource center working with indigenous peoples at all levels and areas. They seek the recognition, promotion and protection of indigenous peoples' rights and aspirations while building unions to uphold social and environmental justice and sustainability.
Tebtebba envisions a world where indigenous peoples’ rights, embedded in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) and other Human Rights Conventions and instruments, are respected, protected and fulfilled; where there are unified yet diverse and vibrant indigenous peoples’ movements, formations and communities at various levels, which persist in asserting indigenous peoples’ human rights and achieving sustainable, self-determined development; where respect for diversity, human rights, solidarity and reciprocity with nature and all creation is the basis of coexistence between peoples and between human beings and the natural world.
Tebtebba's activities are to reinforce the capacitiies of indigenous peoples for advocacy, campaigns and networking; research, education, training, and institutional development; and to actively articulate and project indigenous peoples' views and perspectives.
