Event Dates:

The First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee - Sunday Forum Presents

 

Adoption of the United Nations Declaration 

on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples:  14 Years Later

 

Sunday – October 10th, 2021

11 AM – 12 Noon

 

With a presentation by

 

Tony Gonzalez of the American Indian Movement (AIM) – West & Former 

Executive Director of the International Indian Treaty Council

 

The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) was adopted by the General Assembly on September 13th, 2007, 

with 144 countries voting in support, 4 voting against, and 11 abstaining.

 

Fourteen years have passed since the UN Declaration was adopted by the General Assembly. Since then, the four countries voting against have reversed their position and now support the Declaration. 

 

Today, the Declaration is the most comprehensive international instrument on the rights of indigenous peoples. It establishes a universal framework of minimum standards for the survival, dignity, and well-being of the indigenous peoples of the world and it elaborates on existing human rights standards and fundamental freedoms as they apply to the specific situation of indigenous peoples.
