“Before they told us we didn’t exist;

now they know we do.”

Can you care for people you’ve never heard of? 

Doing so has raised the profile of indigenous peoples and their issues inside and outside Panama.

We at Native Future think that’s pretty hard to do. So we collaborate with journalists, photographers, videographers and communications specialists to help our indigenous partners document and communicate their story to a greater audience. Our work has resulted in front-page articles and featured videos, and has increased indigenous capacity to work with the press and manage social and other media.
