The Cultural Survival Bazaars are festive celebrations of global and local Indigenous arts. Artists representing dozens of cultures from India, Nepal, Guatemala, Mexico, Tanzania, Peru, Zimbabwe, Madagascar, Laos, Tibet, the US, and many more countries gather for a weekend of art, craft, food, connection, shopping, and celebration.

Volunteering at the Bazaars is a great way to directly support our work and meet the artists and cooperatives we work with. Volunteering can involve greeting the public and answering questions, flyering, setting up behind the scenes, supporting Indigenous artists in their booths, running Cultural Survival's booth to sell items, and more, including time with Indigenous artists and our staff team, learning about Indigenous cultures, and enjoying this festive event.

Minimum 5 hours required. Discount on crafts at Cultural Survival's booth. If you stay for 5+ hours, a meal will be included. We look forward to having you join us!

Mission Statement

Cultural Survival advocates for Indigenous Peoples' rights and supports Indigenous communities’ self-determination, cultures and political resilience since 1972.

Description

Since 1972, Cultural Survival has partnered with Indigenous communities to advance Indigenous Peoples' rights and cultures worldwide. The core of our efforts rest on the principles of supporting, amplifying efforts and raising awareness of self-determination for Indigenous communities. Cultural Survival employs a participatory, rights-based approach to our relationships that respects and strengthens Indigenous rights while honoring traditional Indigenous worldviews and lifeways.

Our programs work to inform, create resources for, support access to information, bolster freedom of expression, and assist Indigenous communities to organize and shape their futures in ways consistent with their traditions, languages, cultures. We publicize Indigenous Peoples' issues through our award-winning Cultural Survival Quarterly; we mount on the ground campaigns and other advocacy efforts to stop environmental destruction and abuses of Indigenous Peoples' rights, always at the community’s invitation.

Headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, we have satellite offices in Guatemala and New Mexico. Cultural Survival also holds consultative status with the United Nations Economic Social and Cultural Council.
