November 10, 2011

(Ottawa, ON) – Assembly of First Nations (AFN) National Chief Shawn A-in-chut Atleo stated today that everyone has a clear role to play in ensuring respect for fundamental human rights, including international Indigenous human rights standards as set out in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UN Declaration). In a critical step long advocated for by First Nations and Indigenous leaders worldwide, one year ago, Canada endorsed the UN Declaration, formally reversing its previous opposition.
