Building Blocks for a Brilliant Future: Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP)

This year (2017) we celebrate the tenth anniversary of the adoption of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP). This key document describes both individual and collective rights of Indigenous peoples around the world. It offers guidance on cooperative relationships with Indigenous peoples to states, the United Nations, and other international organizations based on the principles of equality, partnership, good faith and mutual respect. It addresses the rights of Indigenous peoples on issues such as: culture, identity, religion, language, health, education, community, etc.

Many people have observed that the document appeals powerfully to Indigenous peoples while non-Indigenous governments have been, and continue, to grapple with its full implications. In Canada, there has been a long and fierce battle to first have it recognized and then start working on its implementation.

UNDRIP has done more than enter into the Indigenous political vocabulary; it has become, with virtually no notice, a veritable pillar of the Aboriginal world view or, perhaps more accurately, a validation of Indigenous political thinking and aspirations. –Ken Coates, Canada Research Chair in Regional Innovation
