Indigenous Advocates

Since 2011, ISHR has been enriched by the presence of Indigenous Human Rights Advocates. Seven advocates have joined the Human Rights Advocates program from 2011 to 2016.

This has been possible thanks to ISHR’s collaboration with Indigenous and other organizations that are committed, as our Institute is, to continue strengthening capacities in the human rights field . Athili Saapriina (Naga, India) was the first to attend the Human Rights Advocates Program (HRAP) in 2011 following a partnership between our Institute and Tribal Link Foundation.

Six Indigenous women human rights advocates have attended from 2014 to 2016 thanks to the close collaboration between our Institute and the International Indigenous Women’s Forum (FIMI). FIMI has established the Indigenous Women’s Global Leadership School (IWGLS) and the Institute’s Indigenous Peoples’ Rights Program provides one of the modules of this annual program by hosting some 25 Indigenous women leaders from around the world for a three-day seminar in the Spring. Each year, two attendees of IWGLS continue their education with ISHR's Human Rights Advocates Program.

ISHR shares with FIMI, Tribal Link Foundation, and others the conviction that capacity building, political participation, a world free of violence and the promotion of leadership at local, national and international levels, are essential components in poverty reduction as well as the achievement of Indigenous Peoples’ rights.
