On September 13th 2007, the General Assembly of the UN adopted the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), encompassing some 370 million Indigenous peoples in more than 70 countries.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of this Declaration, the Assembly of First Nations Quebec-Labrador (AFNQL), in collaboration partnership with Ville de Montréal and the Canadian Commission for UNESCO, is organizing a series of festive and educational events in Montreal – unceded Kanien'kehá:ka (Mohawk) traditional territory. Panel discussions, outdoor concerts, artistic performances and Indigenous gastronomy will be part of this international and historical moment!
“Indigenous peoples and individuals are free and equal to all other peoples and individuals and have the right to be free from any kind of discrimination, in the exercise of their rights, in particular that based on their indigenous origin or identity.”
