Minority Groups and Indigenous Peoples Website

If visual anthropology is concerned with salvage ethnography, then it must be concerned about minorities and indigenous peoples as well. Minority Rights Group International maintains an important and useful website.

Minority Rights Group International campaigns worldwide with around 130 partners in over 60 countries to ensure that disadvantaged minorities and indigenous peoples, often the poorest of the poor, can make their voices heard. Through training and education, legal cases, publications and the media, we support minority and indigenous people as they strive to maintain their rights to the land they live on, the languages they speak, to equal opportunities in education and employment, and to full participation in public life.
