Welcome to the PIPLinks archive site

After almost 30 years of work in solidarity with indigenous peoples, PIPLinks ceased operating in October 2015.

PIPLinks' staff and board appreciate that the news of PIPLinks' closure has caused some disappointment and we are grateful for all the expressions of concern and support that have been received from our partners, and the wider family of indigenous peoples activists.

We take great pride in the track record of the organisation (see: the About Us section), and we take heart from the fact that there are a number of, primarily indigenous, organisations who have sprung up since we started, who have taken on the major areas of our work.

PIPLinks' website is a source of articles, reports and campaign documents, and we have arranged that this resource remains available for public use until September 2018 (at least). Please find articles focussed on the Philippines here, on international issues hereand resources here.

Those of us involved in PIPLinks look forward to continuing to be part of the growing movement on indigenous rights, and thank all those who have supported us over our years of existence.

Indigenous Peoples Links (PIPLinks) exists to uphold and promote the collective and individual human rights of Indigenous Peoples and other land-based communities. PIPLinks was founded in the United Kingdom in 1992, originally as Philippine Indigenous Peoples Links, in response to requests for support from Philippine Indigenous Peoples' organisations, where much of our work is focussed.

This website is divided between materials on Indigenous Peoples around the world in the Philippines. These materials are divided under specific subject headings - such as those to do with the legal rights or culture of Indigenous Peoples - or geographically. Although the site contains many published materials available elsewhere, and links to other sites, we are aiming where possible to publish unique materials, such as statements from communities or interviews, that are not available elsewhere. The site can be searched here.

We welcome inquiries, comments on this site and invitations to speak. We are always in need of active supporters, donations, volunteers and friends of all kinds. Please contact us for more information.
