Organizations

The Arctic Council Indigenous Peoples' Secretariat is a support Secretariat for the International Indigenous Peoples' Organisations that are Permanent Participants to the Arctic Council. IPS does not speak for the Permanent Participants. Instead, it creates opportunities for the Indigenous Peoples' Organisations to speak for themselves, and helps provide them with necessary information and materials.

The six Indigenous Peoples' Organizations covering the Arctic region are:
Aleut International Association - AIA
Arctic Athabaskan Council - AAC
Gwich'in Council International - GCI
Inuit Circumpolar Council - ICC
Russian Association of Indigenous Peoples of the North - RAIPON
Saami Council - SC
