The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples affirms the rights of Indigenous Peoples across a broad range of areas, including self-determination, spirituality, land, and resources. It can be an impetus for change, but it is only a framework. Implementation will require sustained effort. Laws and policies must change to fulfill the Declaration’s promises. We are partnered with Colorado Law on The Implementation Project, which works to implement the Declaration and honor Indigenous rights in the United States.
