Founding Meeting of the American Council of Indigenous Peoples

On April 18, 2018, President Chartier made an intervention at the Dialogue with the President of the General Assembly on Indigenous Participation expressing the disappointment of the Métis Nation in the failure of the United Nations (UN) General Assembly at last year’s session to adopt measures to increase Indigenous peoples enhanced participation in the General Assembly which was an outcome of the 2014 World Conference on Indigenous Peoples held by the General Assembly. In the period from 2014 to the fall of 2017 the President of the General Assembly undertook consultations with Indigenous peoples and reported back last fall with recommendations which were not acted upon.

The President of the GA is undertaking another round of consultations, the one yesterday being part of that process. He is to report back to the GA in 2019. President Chartier expressed the intention of the Métis Nation to continue its involvement in the consultations going forward.

President Chartier also informed the session that several Indigenous nations and peoples last week in Lima, Peru formed an Americas-wide organization, the American Council of Indigenous Peoples (ACIP) and that this new body would also engage in these consultations going forward, but that ACIP would concentrate much of its efforts on seeking greater engagement within the Organization of American States (OAS) as it is severely lacking in such participation.
