Think tank

Tebtebba - Indigenous Peoples' International Centre for Policy Research and Education is an indigenous peoples' institution born out of the need for heightened advocacy to have the inherent human rights of indigenous peoples respected, protected and fulfilled. Tebtebba seeks to raise the awareness of governments and the dominant society on indigenous peoples' situations, worldviews, rights, and perspectives on development, wellbeing and sustainability. In this effort, it strives to enhance indigenous peoples' capacities to take the lead in awareness-raising, policy advocacy, education and training, research and communication, on all issues affecting them. Tebtebba, a word used by the indigenous Kankana-ey Igorots of Northern Philippines, refers to a process of collectively discussing issues and presenting diverse views with the aim of reaching agreements, common positions, and concerted actions.
