Indigenous Peoples are leading some of the strongest and the most successful struggles of our time.

On one hand, they're confronting the destructive practices of the mining, logging, oil, nuclear, coal and hydro industries; they're preventing biotech firms from contaminating our food supply and agribusiness firms from privatizing our water. They're taking on biofuel companies, pipeline developers, real estate agencies and many other corporate enterprises aloud the world.

At the same time, Indigenous Peoples are making great strides in the arenas of climate justice, food sovereignty, conservation, human rights and international law. And all the while, they're going head to head with paramilitary groups, drug cartels, militias, organized crime syndicates and Nation states for systemic human rights abuses and other transgressions.

But you wouldn't know it by looking at the news. That fact is, most editors and publishers just aren't interested in telling stories that involve Indigenous Peoples. In many cases, they believe that you don't you care enough to know. Others think they won't get enough new facebook likes out of it.

For the past 11 years, we have focused our efforts on spotlighting stories that other news outlets ignore and providing a dedicated space for Indigenous Peoples to tell their own stories without intermediaries.

But our work doesn't stop there. We're constantly striving to serve the international community more effectively by filling in other cracks and crevices in our global media ecosystem.

For instance, we're in the process now of developing an unprecedented set of editorial guidelines to ensure ensure that indigenous rights, needs, interests, cultures and perspectives are respectfully, responsibly and fully represented in our coverage.

We're building an online cultural exchange program for Indigenous youth in Canada and the United States; giving these young people a way to share stories about their own cultures and languages with each other - and with you.

We're preparing to get started on a first-of-its-kind investigative web documentary series that will introduce us to eight indigenous communities in Central America over the course of two years.

This is just the start. We have many more things planned in the coming years.

IC Magazine is a news organization like no other

We're also working hard to turn IC into a sustainable news organization that can truly bring you to the frontlines of the world.

The world's Indigenous Peoples are depending on us to carry this work forward. While recent advancements in technology have vastly shifted our collective capacity to produce, transmit and access journalism, Indigenous Peoples continue to face a routine of exclusion, misrepresentation and marginalization across the globe.

We are the bottom line. It's up to us to make sure that no more stories fall through the cracks.

When you sign up today, you are making sure that we can keep pushing forward. And, if that's not incentive enough, we also have some great things to give you in return for your support, including a subscription to the Fourth World Journal, an online seminar, class or course at the Fourth World Institute, and free magazines!

We're in this together
