About CISD

CISD is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that seeks to raise global awareness of the struggles faced by tribal, nomadic, and indigenous people through study, research, and advocacy. Our research aims to spread understanding of the variety of cultures of these groups, their challenges and needs, and the elements of globalization that threaten them. Our programs and projects build on that knowledge by providing innovative solutions to the people with the most pressing needs, creating sustainable economic projects that allow them to improve their standards of living, responding to the educational demands facing these people, and preserving their distinctive cultural, linguistic, and national identity.

CISD does not have any governmental, political or religious affiliations.
