North American Indigenous Peoples Caucus (NAIPC) withdrew in protest from “UN World Conference on Indigenous Issues”, disputing UN President of GA suggestion that an unified indigenous position has been achieved (read original NAIPC letter to United Nations)

Sunday, April 6th, 2014

The North American Indigenous Peoples Caucus (NAIPC) letter was submitted to  Mr. Ashe’s (United Nations President of the General Assembly) on April 1, 2014,  correcting and disputing Mr. Ashe’s  suggestion in his recent UN document that an unified indigenous position has been achieved regarding the High Level Plenary Meeting on Indigenous Peoples (aka “World Conference on Indigenous Issues”), and that in fact the NAIPC withdrew from it and any further participation because the modalities that were adopted by the UN for the HLPM meeting did not respect the full, equal and effective participation of Indigenous Peoples with UN state members.
