CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Cultural Survival – an organization created to protect indigenous lands, languages and cultures around the world – is seeking nominations for the Ellen L. Lutz Indigenous Rights Award.

The award will be given to an advocate who is pursuing the rights of Indigenous people.

The award is intended to recognize activists for their dedication, passion and commitment to human rights and their struggle for indigenous rights. The award also recognizes the challenging and often dangerous conditions and situations that activists face in pursuing their work.

The Cultural Survival board and donors created the award in memory of Cultural Survival Executive Director Ellen L. Lutz, who led Cultural Survival from 2004-10. Lutz’s contribution to Cultural Survival was part of a lifetime of human rights work that included positions with the Center for Human Rights and Conflict Resolution and Human Rights Watch, teaching at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University and books on subjects that ranged from consequences of torture to trying heads of state for human rights violations.

The recipient of the award will receive $10,000 and will be presented in May at a reception in New York City at the time of the United Nations Permanent Forum on the Rights of Indigenous People.

Nominations for the award may be received from any individual or group until Jan. 31. Nominations should include a letter about why a person is being nominated and a biography and contact information for the nominee. The recipient will be selected in February.

Nominations can be sent to Miranda Vitello by email at mvitello@cs.org or by mail to her attention at 215 Prospect Street, Cambridge, Mass. 02139.
