M1-WS 4: Nepal Federation of Indigenous Nationalities


Formed in 1991, NEFIN is a member of the United Nation’s Working group on Indigenous Populations.  Their mission “is to acquire social equality and justice for Indigenous Nationalities by preserving their distinct social, political, cultural and linguistic identities and by promoting their representation in very aspect of national life.”  Aesthetically speaking, this is a beautiful and well designed web site.  There is a slide show with fantastic photographs of various different Indigenous people from Nepal rotating on the homepage.  Half of the text on the site is in English and half is in Nepali, although all of the control text (buttons, menus, etc) is in English. The site has a lot of demographic and statistical information available about Nepalese people that could be used to argue a certain educational need or solution.  There are many articles and papers about development projects and initiatives currently happening around the country.
