Learn and exercise your rights: A simplified version of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP)

Number of pages: 32
Release year: 2013
This booklet presents in a simple and illustrative manner, the collective rights of indigenous peoples as contained in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). It is intended as an educational tool for communities to understand indigenous peoples' rights and to know what they can do to promote and protect their rights. While indigenous peoples are five percent of the global population, they comprise fifteen percent of the poorest of the poor. Throughout centuries, indigenous peoples have been asserting and defending their lands, territories and resources as the source of their distinct identities, cultures and ways of life. They continue to voice and demand the recognition of their collective rights as a matter of attaining equality and dignity for all. This publication has been published with the support from IWGIA and others.
