Implementation Project Resources
The United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues held its Twenty-First Session (UNPFII21), April 25 – May 6, 2022. The theme of the session was “Indigenous peoples, business, autonomy and the human rights principles of due diligence including free, prior and informed consent.” The Project held several online events, about the Forum, implementation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in the United States, and the International Decade of Indigenous Languages.
In 2020, the Implementation Project published its Tribal Implementation Toolkit, in partnership with UCLA School of Law. This Toolkit is intended to assist tribal leaders, lawyers, and advocates in implementing the UN-Declaration.
In addition to the digital version, which features artwork by Joni Sarah White, we also offer a text-only version more suitable for screen readers or other accessibility aids.
The Project’s first publication was the 2019 Conference Report on Implementing the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, available in the CU Law Review.
The report grew out of the March 2019 conference, “Call to Action in Indian Country,” where the Implementation Project was launched by CU-Law and NARF. The conference featured workshops on cultural rights, environmental advocacy, business and entrepreneurship, Indian child welfare, technology and communications, Indigenous languages, and how to address Indian Law changes in the United States using an international human rights framework.
