Are You Ready for #Proud2BIndigenous Week? 

May 11th-17th, 2014

#Proud2BIndigenous Week is coming up! We wanted to make sure you knew some easy ways to get involved:

1. Send us your Proud to Be Indigenous photo!
Just take a picture of you holding your #P2BI sign and we'll share it during the week.

2. Host an event 
Is your organization hosting an event during UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII)? Please let us know, and we'll gladly promote it! Individuals can also get involved - have you considered hosting a documentary screening, book or poetry reading, live-tweet, or discussion during #P2BI? We'd love to help you out with ideas and hear about what you're doing!
3. Attend a UNPFII event   
Cultural Survival is involved in several side events at the UNPFII, we would love to see you.

Be Part of Our FPIC Initiative
For our next round of programs, we are seeking to interview Indigenous delegates attending the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in New York from May 12-23 on solutions and success stories they have to share.

Has your community or organization had great success with a grassroots project? Have you improved women's participation, successfully rejected an exploitative project, revitalized your language, or implemented another project to the benefit of your community? Would you like to support other Indigenous communities facing similar challenges?

Want to participate? Contact us at consent@cs.org .

Visit consent.cs.org to listen to our programs in English and several Indigenous languages.

5. Join the conversation
Each day during #P2BI we'll be focusing on a different theme. You can see the schedule here , and join our conversation on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #P2BI or #Proud2BIndigenous. If you have a particular interest or expertise in one of these topics, you could also consider writing a guest blog post for us - please email agnes@cs.org or communications@firstpeoples.org if you're interested!
