    United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples: Tribal Implementation Toolkit

    The cover of United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples: Tribal Implementation Toolkit

    The UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is a standard-setting document that recognizes that Indigenous Peoples have rights to self-determination, equality, property, culture, religious freedom, health, and economic well-being, among many others. It calls on States to undertake legal reform that will remedy past violations and ensure current protections for Indigenous Peoples’ rights.

    The “Tribal Implementation Toolkit,” produced in collaboration between the Native American Rights Fund, the University of Colorado Law School, and UCLA Law’s Tribal Legal Development Clinic, considers how tribes can support and implement the Declaration through tribal lawmaking.
