Indigenous Peoples in Voluntary Isolation

THE FOCUS OF THIS ISSUE: INDIGENOUS PEOPLES IN VOLUNTARY ISOLATION

Many people are unaware that there are still indigenous peoples living in voluntary isolation –both contacted and uncontacted- particularly in the tropics. People are also largely unaware about the impacts resulting from forced or free contacts of these peoples with the outside world. As a means of generating awareness and support to their plight, we have focused this entire bulletin on this issue, in collaboration with the Forest Peoples Programme and with other organizations and individuals working to protect these peoples' rights.
