Title: Draft Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples
Available From: http://www.unesco.org/most/lnlaw9.htm
http://www1.umn.edu/humanrts/instree/declra.htm
Description: "This is the most comprehensive statement of the rights of Indigenous Peoples to date, establishing collective rights to a greater extent than any other document in international human rights law. It establishes the rights of Indigenous Peoples to the protection of their cultural property and identity as well as the rights to education, employment, health, religion, language and more. It also protects the right of Indigenous Peoples to own land collectively. Although States are not legally bound by the Declaration, it will exert a considerable amount of moral force when adopted by the General Assembly." (excerpt from the Study Guide: The Rights of Indigenous Peoples, University of Minnesota Human Rights Library). The declaration is annexed to resolution number 45 (p. 103 of the report).
Legal Citation: UN Doc. E/CN.4/Sub.2/1994/56 (1994)
