In September 2007, the United Nations adopted a Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. It contains 46 Articles laying out the rights ALL indigenous Peoples have throughout the world. Yet, many conflicts, oppression, and violations suggest these rights are more often ignored than respected and upheld. These oppressions must end; we must have honest discussions that will lead us to take the initiative to work together to end injustice and find ways that all indigenous people get their freedom and dignity.

Join us for an open discussion about the historical and present-day treatment of Indigenous Peoples in the United States and around the globe. Our diverse panelists across the USA will give an insight that will help us understand the commonalities and differences among disputes, occupations, violations of basic human rights and guide our ways to defend and preserve the human rights of indigenous people and be their allies.
