Towards a New Millennium. Ten Years of the Indigenous Movement in Russia
This book is a collection of articles written by indigenous leaders and politicians from all parts of Russia. The articles outline the history of indigenous peoples' struggle, events and conditions of the recent decade. The indigenous umbrella organisation in Russia, the Russian Association of Indigenous Peoples of the North (RAIPON), celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2000, an occasion for looking back at its work during its 10-year history and at the same time looking forward to the new millennium. The articles were originally produced as a book for this occasion. Towards a new Millennium is a translation of the original Russian version of the book and it represents an attempt to strengthen the awareness outside the country of the struggle of indigenous peoples in Russia.
