International Conference of Indian Indigenous Peoples of India for the Recognition and Rights in UN
October 15, 2022
On behalf of Global Home for Indigenous Peoples, I was invited as to speak at the International Conference of Indian Indigenous Peoples for the recognition and rights in the UN. The conference was one of the largest gatherings of Indian Indigenous Peoples and their leaders in Nagpur. Among the dignitaries, Mr. Phoolman Chaudhary, Vice-Chair of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII), Dr. Haneih Moghani (legal advisor of CENESTA, Iran and the incoming Asia member of UNPFII) also attended the conference. The Vice-Chair of UNPFII and the incoming Asia member of UNPFII gave their commitment to support the Indigenous Peoples of India in voicing their struggles at the United Nations. The solidarity shown by all the Indigenous leaders at the conference gave a lot of hope to the Indigenous Peoples of India.
Global Home for Indigenous Peoples established remarkable relationships with the Indian Indigenous Peoples and their leaders. It was inspiring to connect with the Indigenous Peoples movement in India.
