UN Checking Up On Human Rights

Photo by Hugh Nelson

Wed. 4/11 11a: The United Nations’ Special Rapportuer on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Professor James Anaya, is making his way through Indian Country and he’s holding consultations to hear what Native nations have to say about human rights issues. 

One of his tasks is to assess how the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is being reflected in laws and policies connected to Native America.

What’s the view from your area? Are there any successes or challenges you’d like to share with the UN?

Guests include Andrea Carmen (Yaqui) Executive Director/International Indian Treaty Council and Bill Means (Oglala Lakota) Board Member/International Indian Treaty Council.
