Supporting Indigenous Philanthrophy


The 9th conference of the International Funders for Indigenous Peoples (IFIP) took place in Tofino, Canada, from May 15-17. IFIP is comprised of member organizations, primarily donors such as The Christensen Fund, Ford Foundation, and Walter and Duncan Gordon Foundation. Among its members, IFIP promotes increasing the amount and efficacy of funding for indigenous peoples, particularly in the face of widespread loss of interlinked biological and cultural diversity. With the 9th conference focusing on transformative education, environment, and human rights advocacy, Harry Jonas (Natural Justice) presented on bio-cultural community protocols as one rights-based approach to implementing the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
