INDIGENOUS PEOPLES' RIGHTS

On November 13, 2012, the program "Indigenous Peoples' Rights: A Historical and Contemporary Global Movement" was held in the Pennsylvania State University Libraries.  The presentation was co-sponsored by the Centre County Chapter United Nations Association, the University Libraries, Penn State Office of Global Programs, the Penn State Center for Global Studies, and the Penn State Interinstitutional Consortium for Indigenous Knowledge (ICIK)

The joint presentation by Julie Rowland and Judy Bertonazzi described the circumstances leading to the 2007 United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP ) and highlighted some of the legal issues and conflicts that are involved in the implementation of a UN Declaration that is supported by the executive branch of the U.S. government, but has not been ratified by Congress. 

Since that presentation the Rowland and Bertonazzi papers have been published and have now been reprinted, with other materials on UNDRIP, as a special issues of the ICIK Newsletter.  

You may watch the seminar on the University Libraries Media Site Live platform and download the full issue of the ICIK Special Issue Spring E-News.  A follow-up article is available in the Summer 2014 ICIK E-news.  Both are available below.
