Capacity Building through Human Rights Training: Indigenous Peoples in the International Arena
Riverwind Hotel, Norman, Oklahoma
After more than 20 years of work, the United Nations (UN) approved the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples on September 13, 2007. What does that mean to Native Nations in Oklahoma? How can tribes and communities use UN Human Rights bodies to defend our rights and support our issues? Join us for an in-depth presentation on how Indigenous Peoples can participate effectively at the international level.
