Our Projects

Native Planet strives to give indigenous peoples around the world a voice amidst the threatening din of “modernization” and the power to preserve and protect their traditions. Global education and our active on-site humanitarian projects assist indigenous groups in their own cultural preservation and self-empowerment. With input from knowledgeable members of the communities to whom we offer help, we plan and implement projects tailored to the unique needs of each individual culture.

THE MENTAWAI PROJECTS
The loss of indigenous lifestyles removes our best examples of sustainable living. Due to Indonesia’s unchecked modernization, the ancient Mentawai culture — and all its wisdommay disappear within the next ten years.

THE RAJASTHAN PROJECTS
The harsh environment, population increases and recent severe droughts are combining to pressure traditional desert cultures out of existence. Native Planet and Indian NGO Nitigat are offering elemental, sustainable solutions to mitigate these negative effects.

CULTURAL DOCUMENTARIES

Indigenous Cultures

Native cultures are fast disappearing as they are forcibly assimilated into “mainstream” society--see the heritage we’re preserving!

INDIGENOUS MAPPING

Mapping the Indigenous Ethnic Diversity

We are taking a crucial first step toward protection of our remaining cultural diversity by documenting the world’s most traditional communities in our Indigenous Mapping Database.
