The Center received a copy of a statement by the Global Indigenous Peoples Caucus at the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues calling for the UN to cancel the World Conference on Indigenous Peoples.  

It is very important to make it clear to the Permanent Forum and to the member countries of the UN that the Global Indigenous Peoples Caucus does not represent the views of all indigenous peoples, their governments and representatives.  Many authentic and democratically elected tribal leaders representing their citizens want to see the World Conference take place and to adopt strong and effective decisions to advance the rights of indigenous peoples.  We have emailed UN member countries expressing these points.

We will also make it clear in our joint statement to the Permanent Forum on Monday, May 19, 2014, that we want the Conference to be held and to take strong, effective actions.  Click here to review the draft statement.

There is still time for tribal governments and indigenous organizations to sign on to the joint statement that will be made by more than 80 tribes and organizations to the Permanent Forum on Monday.  Please let us know if you want to support the statement, by emailing Karla General
