PRESS CONFERENCE ON RIGHT OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES TO WATER

Indigenous peoples must be consulted - and their right to free, prior and informed consent respected - if the target of halving the proportion of people lacking access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation was to be reached by 2015, in line with the Millennium Development Goals, members of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues said at a Headquarters press conference today.

Valmaine Toki, Permanent Forum member from Aotearoa (New Zealand), said that message could not come too soon for the 1.1 billion people lacking access to safe drinking water and the 2.6 billion in need of adequate sanitation. Indigenous peoples were still being sidelined in debates about State water-management policies and strategies to address other water issues.

HIGHLIGHT - SPECIAL RECOGNITION

Salamanca Students Join 10th Session of the UNPFII at the UN
Submitted by Susan Andrews, Salamanca City Schools Public Information Specialist

WGRZ

Eighteen Salamanca City Central School students, members of the world’s first Model United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII), traveled to New York City to attend the initial days of the 10th Session of the UNPFII at the United Nations. Native American students registered for the opportunity to speak on the issue of Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) rights, part of the U.N. Declaration of Indigenous Rights. Senior, Courtney Crouse, Tonawanda Seneca, Turtle Clan, was recognized by the session and called upon to read the statement she authored on behalf of the SCCSD Model UNPFII students. Strong support was shown by the delegates’ applause and the large numbers who came up to introduce themselves, wanting to follow up with the group in the future. The students were told over and over how much respect the delegates had for them, noting their strength to attend these sessions and present testimony. The students made a positive and lasting impression as they represented the Seneca community and their families to the world. (more)

PERMANENT INDIGENOUS FORUM DISCUSSES PROVISIONAL AGENDA FOR 2011 SESSION, INCLUDING PROPOSED SPECIAL THEME 'THE DOCTRINE OF DISCOVERY

The Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, meeting today to discuss the provisional agenda for its next session, solidified its plans to hold discussions in 2012 on food security, human rights and the session's proposed special theme, the "Doctrine of Discovery" - which some members stressed would be a "forward thinking" dialogue.

The special theme, which refers to the way in which courts historically and legally justified the annexing of indigenous lands, was the subject of many statements made by delegates and Forum members throughout the current two-week session. Alvaro Esteban Pop, a Forum member from Guatemala, said the theme - formally, "The Doctrine of Discovery: its enduring impact on indigenous peoples and the right to redress for past conquests" - would play an important role as national constitutions evolved to include considerations of indigenous rights. To that end, the Forum's discussion during its eleventh session would analyse national constructs, as reflected in constitutions, and would help to establish guidelines for making the Declaration a "specific element" of those texts.

Australian Forum member Megan Davis agreed, noting that the proposed theme had significant support among the Forum's members. The discussion, which she stressed would focus on the future of indigenous communities and not just on historical wrongs, was consistent with the right to self-determination, as enshrined in the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. In that respect, she hoped that delegates would come to the Forum's eleventh session with concrete examples for the ways in which they could move forward together. (more)

CONCLUDING SESSION, PERMANENT FORUM STRESSES NEED FOR EQUAL, DIRECT PARTICIPATION OF INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES AT ALL STAGES OF PREPARATION FOR 2014 WORLD CONFERENCE

Adopts Report, Including 8 Consensus Texts on Broad Range of Issues Discussed; Chair Says: ‘Our Challenge’ Now to Continue Session’s Dialogue ‘in Our Countries’

Concluding its tenth anniversary session today with the adoption of a draft report on that session, the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues looked to its future work, welcoming the opportunity and full responsibility in playing a central role in preparations for the 2014 World Conference on Indigenous Peoples and underlining the need for the equal, direct and meaningful participation of indigenous communities during all stages of that landmark meeting.

The Forum’s draft report, adopted as orally amended, was composed of eight texts approved by consensus and based on the 16-member expert body’s discussions during its 2011 session, which opened on 16 May. Meeting without a special theme this year, the Forum conducted follow-up reviews of a number of its recommendations on economic and social development, the environment and free, prior and informed consent, as well as human rights. The human rights review focused on implementation of the 2007 Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which, the Forum concluded, remained a big challenge in most regions around the world.

Don’t allow Human Rights violators: UNPFII to UN

New York, May 28 (bdnews24.com)—The UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII) has urged the United Nations to prevent military units violating human rights from participating international peacekeeping activities.

At the closing of its 10th session in New York on Friday, the forum also requested the Department of Peacekeeping Operations, which decides on the issue of deploying army from different countries to the missions, to evaluate records of the army before letting their countries take part in the peacekeeping operations.


UNPFII DELEGATES LEAVE UN HEADQUARTERS
WITH A PRAYER AND A SONG TO GUIDE THEM IN THEIR WORK

Following its tradition, the Forum closed with a prayer of thanksgiving, which was delivered this year by Kenneth Deer, of the Mohawk Nation of Canada. The closing song, which told of the reindeer — who, like Indigenous peoples, know no borders — was performed by Niko Valkeapaa, of the Saami Council.
