First Peoples Worldwide is the only Indigenous-led organization dedicated to promoting Indigenous economic determination and strengthening Indigenous communities globally. www.firstpeoples.org
|Mission||The mission of First Peoples Worldwide is to build upon a foundation of Indigenous values to achieve a sustainable future for all. By supporting Indigenous communities and engaging key political, economic and social institutions, together we innovate and demonstrate solutions that combine the best of Indigenous and contemporary practice.|
First Peoples Worldwide was first developed in 1997 by Cherokee social entrepreneur Rebecca Adamson, as a program of her non-profit First Nations Development Institute. In 2005, Rebecca and her daughter, Neva, founded First Peoples Worldwide as a full-fledged organization in its own right. We focus on funding local development projects in Indigenous communities all over the world while creating bridges between our communities and corporations, governments, academics, NGOs and investors in their regions. We facilitate the use of traditional Indigenous knowledge in solving today’s challenges, including climate change, food security, medicine, governance and sustainable development.
