Miscellaneous Information:

The Indigenous Media Foundation was established by journalists from indigenous communities in Nepal, and was registered under the Company Act of Nepal as a non-profit organization in 2011. They use the media as a tool to promote indigenous peoples’ constitutional, fundamental, and human rights, knowledge, practices, and cultural and linguistic diversity. The IMF provides mentoring and training for journalists from indigenous communities.

They facilitate capacity building and support the production of media tools, content and programming that promotes linguistic and cultural diversity and rituals in remote indigenous communities and the media sector. The mission of the IMF is to provide an empowering forum where indigenous peoples can celebrate and transfer their culture, language, history, rituals, heritage, and knowledge to younger generations. They emphasize the advocacy, empowerment, and education of indigenous peoples through different media channels, and enable dialogue between indigenous people, authorities and policy makers.
