Human rights discussed as a cross-cutting theme in the World Conference on Indigenous Peoples | UNIC Canberra

un.org.au [cached]

Soyata Maiga, Chairperson of the African Commission's Working Group on Indigenous Populations/Communities, said that the Conference should be articulated around exchanges of best practices and prospects for the rights of indigenous peoples.
She suggested that particular attention be given to the participation of women and young people. SOYATA MAIGA, Chairperson of the African Commission's Working Group on Indigenous Populations/Communities, said the World Conference was a major landmark for hope for the peoples' of Africa and should serve not only as an opportunity to reaffirm the norms and values of the Declaration, but also serve as a framework to identify concrete and urgent action and innovative strategies. The Conference should be articulated around exchanges of best practices and prospects for the rights of indigenous peoples. They should be able to identify good practices but also the obstacles to the full protection of indigenous peoples which was only possible with the full participation of indigenous peoples themselves in the process. Indigenous people of South Africa often did not have the opportunity to have their voice heard, given the precarious situation in which they lived and as they did not have the means to attend in large numbers. Ms. Maiga suggested that particular attention be given to the participation of women and young people. The African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights had a number of examples, in terms of practices, to exchange. In Ms. Maiga's view, it had not yet been sufficiently involved in the process of preparing for the Conference. SOYATA MAIGA, Chairperson of the African Commission's Working Group on Indigenous Populations/Communities, said that vital issues to the indigenous peoples throughout the world included access to land and water; discrimination against indigenous women and indigenous persons with disabilities; cooperation with the private sector; and also mainstreaming of indigenous peoples issues in the work of the United Nations system. SOYATA MAIGA, Chairperson of the African Commission's Working Group on Indigenous Populations/Communities, thanked contributors for their support leading to the World Conference and stressed that it was important to involve States and indigenous people.


Preparing for the World Conference on Indigenous Peoples: UN General Assembly Informal Interactive Hearings held on 17-18 June

un-ngls.org [cached]

Soyata Maïga, Chairperson of the Working Group on Indigenous Populations/Communities in Africa, referred to the immense hope that the Working Group placed on the WCIP as a means to focus the attention, energy and efforts of all stakeholders - whether at the international, regional or national level - to take into account the particular concerns of indigenous peoples in Africa, estimated at over 50 million belonging to diverse economic systems.
According to a 2003 report of the African Commission, many indigenous peoples are deprived of their fundamental rights; in many African States, they are not officially recognized in their constitutions or legislation, and various forms of discrimination prevent them from exercising their cultural rights. Such discrimination is often exacerbated by social stigmatization and negative attitudes, and results in poverty and social exclusion. Ms. Maïga highlighted a number of growing challenges that further aggravate the situation, including conflict, terrorism, lack of access to land and other natural resources, climate change and extreme poverty.
