This report is the result of the growing concerns for Indigenous people’s rights, diversity and need for policy action in the United Nation’s agenda. Internationally, Indigenous people experience lower social, economical, and political status than non-Indigenous people. Conscious of the rapid disappearance of Indigenous populations and knowledge, this report stresses the need to use the UN declaration on the rights of Indigenous people to serve as a framework for effective international right protection and law. The State of the world’s Indigenous peoples report is an overview of International Indigenous status through seven chapters including poverty and well-being, culture, environment, education, health, human rights, and emerging issues.
