Native Peoples and Tropical Conservation
Native Peoples and Tropical Conservation is a foundation located at
Arizona State University created to provide help to indigenous
South American groups who are exploring methods of sustainable resource
use for economic development. We work directly with native communities and
conservation organizations in order to integrate concern for indigenous human rights
and community development with environmental concerns and interest in biodiversity
conservation. We are a tax free non-profit organization with two co-directors,
Ana Magdalena Hurtado and Kim Hill, both professors in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change at ASU.
We have no overhead and no administrative costs, all donations go directly to community
programs with South American indigenous groups.
Currently we are working with Ache and Guarani communities of Paraguay on health
and sustainable economic development projects. More information will be available about
these projects on this website soon. You can communicate with us at [email protected]
