Consultations with indigenous peoples and Member States on the development of a system-wide action plan

At the 8th Session of the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples
24 July from 11am to 1pm in Geneva.

The United Nations is developing a system wide action plan to ensure a coherent approach to achieving the ends of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. As a part of this work, the UN has prepared a number of Background Notes that inform the process and highlight some of the challenges to the implementation of the Declaration as well as possible areas of action for the United Nations.

These documents are all available here: http://bit.ly/1Mdv356

On July 24th at the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the UN will organize an interactive consultation, seeking the inputs of Member States and indigenous peoples on how to develop such an action plan. Those who wish to provide their inputs, but are unable to attend the Expert Mechanism may do so via:

Blind Fijian Activist Shows Way At The UN

A Fijian activist with Indigenous Peoples with Disabilities Global Network (IPWDGN) has been praised for a statement she delivered recently at the United Nations in New York.

Ruth Senikula was the first person to read a statement in Braille.

A Caribbean-based blogger and president and co-founder of the Caribbean Ameridian Development Organisation (CADO), Damon Corrie wrote on his blog that Ms Senikula received a standing ovation after her statement – so much so that other indigenous delegates from all over the world then stood behind her and formed a wall of solidarity.

Mr Corrie writes in his blog that delegates were so impressed with Ms Senikula that she was asked to read a second statement within days – that in itself a record since delegates at UN meetings hardly get to read a single statement.
