Today is the 10th anniversary of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The Declaration was adopted by the General Assembly on Thursday, September 13, 2007 and is the most comprehensive international instrument on the rights of indigenous peoples. It establishes a universal framework of minimum standards for the survival, dignity and well-being of the indigenous peoples of the world and it elaborates on existing human rights standards and fundamental freedoms as they apply to the specific situation of indigenous peoples.
