Grand Chief Wilton Littlechild, a Cree Chief from #Canada,
makes a ceremonial call to order at August's #IndigenousDay
event at UN Headquarters in #NYC.
On Wednesday, we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the historic #UnitedNations
Declaration on the Rights of #IndigenousPeoples,
which set standards for the survival, dignity and well-being of the 370 million indigenous peoples around the world.
Despite major progress, these indigenous communities continue to face exclusion, marginalization and challenges to their right to self-determination, traditional lands, education and more.
