"We may have found a cure for most evils; but we have no remedy for the worst of them all, the apathy of human beings"

-Helen Keller

What would you do, if you saw discrimination right before your eyes? In our world today, we like to think that what isn't seen isn't real. We assume that because we don't see something on TV, or online or in newspapers, it must not be happening. The sad truth is that it happens everyday. The "It" being the systematic oppression and discrimination against indigenous people in their own countries.

Many indigenous peoples reside in small populations throughout the world. Although some of these peoples are the descendents of ancient civilizations which existed before their respective countries were founded, many of the rights of these indeginous peoples are being violated. The Tangency Foundation aims to raise awareness of the infringement of rights experienced by the natives; we seek to ensure the social equity and political standing of indeginous peoples around the world. Overall, we intend to raise awareness for the unconstitutional acts which violate the basic rights of the oppressed peoples we hope to represent.
