Caldwell Hall, 400 482 Caldwell Hall

A decade later, the Haudenosaunee delegates to the United Nations, Karl Hill (Cayuga) and Darwin Hill (Tonawanda Seneca), will offer their reflections about the historic adoption of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) of 2007. The discussion will focus on the significance of the Declaration itself and their perspective on this global Indigenous effort. They will also outline the Haudenosaunee objectives of engaging the International Community in advocating for the rights of Indigenous Peoples for over 90 years with continued efforts focused on the implementation of UNDRIP as a binding instrument of International law.
