Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Project to Implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in the United States. This website aims to raise awareness of the Declaration in Indian Country and to provide information and support for implementation efforts. On these pages we provide the materials created by the Project, and we also list and link to numerous resources that might help tribes, federal and state employees, and non-governmental organizations who are promoting the rights of indigenous peoples.

The Promise Held in the UN Declaration

The Declaration represents the human rights aspirations of indigenous peoples from across the globe and can be an important tool for tribal advocates seeking legal reform in the United States. It sets standards for the just treatment, legal rights, and relationships of indigenous peoples.

We are gathering at a historic time. . . . We sit at the confluence of international law and domestic law . . . this is a jurisgenerative, law-making moment in our legal and social history.
