Survival International

From their website:

We’re the only organization that champions tribal peoples around the world. We help them defend their lives, protect their lands and determine their own futures.

Our work is preventing the annihilation of tribal peoples. We give them a platform to speak to the world. We investigate atrocities and present evidence to the United Nations and other international forums. We support legal representation. We fund medical and self-help projects. We educate, research, campaign, lobby and protest. And we won’t give up until we all have a world where tribal peoples are respected and their human rights protected.

We provided pro bono consulting for Survival International.

From wikipedia (website here).
