IP Organisations

The Indigenous Peoples movement is vibrant and wide-spread across the Philippines. There are a large number of national and local organisations working for their rights. Given the particular discrimination that they encounter there are groups specifically working upon indigenous women's issues, and because they will be the future of any indigenous movement there is a focus on indigenous youth. Since PIPLinks' origins are in the Cordillera region, there is a specific Igorot Youth area of the site.
