Welcome to the Indian Confederation of Indigenous & Tribal Peoples, India’s largest network of indigenous organizations and communities. In India the indigenous populations are called adivasi – original inhabitants – and we are dedicated to promoting their empowerment, rights and eco-cultural heritage.
Although ICITP primarily focuses on adivasi concerns within India, we are well aware that most of these same issues are also now impacting our indigenous brothers and sisters worldwide. We have already been blessed with rewarding relationships with many foreign indigenous associations and look forward to developing many more.
A truly global network of indigenous voices is now needed to protect the health and diversity of our cultures, communities and ecosystems from the corporate globalization now running roughshod across our world.
If you are adivasi by birth or simply by activistic inclination, we invite your help to celebrate and defend the sacred web of life and equal human rights for us all.
