Each year, Survival International – a charity that lobbies for the rights of indigenous peoples – collate the best of their supporters' pictures into an annual calendar. Celebrating the diversity and beauty of tribal peoples around the world, it supports their mission to help them defend their lives, protect their lands and determine their futures.

From the mountains of Bhutan to the waters of the Amazon, here are the 12 stunning pictures that make up the 2017 calendar.
