IWGIA members are a strong and important base of individuals who support our work for the rights of Indigenous Peoples. Membership supports us in the work we do in cooperation with Indigenous Peoples’ own organisations, as well as with like-minded NGO’s, international organisations and our extensive network of experts and partners.
