Q: Who are indigenous people? A: Rainforests are bursting with life. Not only do millions of species of plants and animals live in rainforests, but people also call the rainforest their home.

The Fund was mainly used for providing small grants to projects that indigenous organizations or organizations working for indigenous peoples applied for funding with a budget for up to US$ 10,000 covering one year’s expenses. More than 100 indigenous organizations participated in the Working Group of the Commission annually.
Nevertheless, indigenous people - those native to California and those who had settled here - persisted in Southern California, and many more continued to move here from all corners of the Americas.
