> > The UN Draft Declaration sets out the rights of indigenous individuals and

> > Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples agreed by consensus to use 
> > the term “peoples” throughout that declaration, and we urge the United 
> > Nations Working Group to do the same. 
> > 
> > ·       The right of self-determination.  Self-determination is an inherent 
> > right as applied to all peoples under international law, and includes the 
> > rights to autonomy and self-government.  Failing to recognize this right 
> > would continue the practice of discrimination against indigenous peoples and 
> > fail to uphold their right, as stated in Article 3 of the UN Draft 
> > Declaration,  “to freely determine their political status and freely pursue 
> > their economic, social and cultural development.”  Attendant to this right 
> > is the principle that indigenous peoples must give their free and informed 
> > consent to any actions that will affect their lands, territories, resources 
> > and cultures. 
> > 
> > ·       Support for collective rights.  Acknowledgement that indigenous 
> > rights exist in the collective as well as for individuals is essential to 
> > the continued survival of indigenous peoples as distinct peoples with unique 
> > cultures, traditions and histories. 
> > 
> > In addition, we recognize, and urge you to recognize, the importance of the
