This is only a small sampling of the tens of thousands of nonprofit non-government organizations who are altruistically doing jobs that their government has neglected and in most cases have opposed. This latter fact speaks to the present dysfunction, counterproductivity, and failure of most of today's unaccountable governments (but accountable in terms of large sums of money to the transnational corporate elitists) who are bent on continuing their control, manipulation, and exploitation of their people, just as they exploit and subjugate natural systems, wildlife and natural resources. In most cases the following organizations represent the common vision and legitimate struggle for people's rights of self determination in the face of transnational greedy paranoiac aggression by alien, corrupt, distant, absent and faceless self serving cartels of power. The people below -- the assemblage of rainbow warriors represent a common spirit for liberation, dignity, harmony, justice, and balance -- they, and a hundred times them, will serve joyously to build the RAINBOWBRIDGE for future generations .

This prophecy mandates that at this time all Indigenous people in the Western Hemisphere shall be reunited in a spiritual way for the following reasons: to reconnect us to our spiritual practices and traditions; to help us relearn our role in the world as indigenous people; and to remind us of our responsibilities to Mother Earth, Father Sky, our communities, and ourselves.

Survival for Tribal Peoples Survival is a worldwide organisation supporting tribal peoples. It stands for their right to decide their own future, and helps them protect their lives, lands, and human rights. It works for tribal peoples' rights in three complementary ways: education, campaigns and funding while offering tribal people themselves a platform to address the world. Survival works with local indigenous organisations focusing on tribal peoples who have the most to lose, usually those most recently in contact with the outside world.
