Organization of American States celebrates First Inter-American Week of Indigenous Peoples

The Organization of American States (OAS) General Assembly in June 2016 adopted the American Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. In June 2017, it adopted a four year Plan of Action for its implementation which this year involves the declaration of the Indigenous week and “American Indigenous Languages” as this year’s theme. This is contained in the attached OAS Note (Concept Paper).

On August 9, 2018, President Chartier addressed the OAS Permanent Council on behalf of the Métis Nation and the newly created American Council of Indigenous Peoples (see video of presentation). Canada has not yet adopted the American Declaration. President Chartier had earlier written to the Prime Minister and a number of his ministers encouraging them to adhere to the Declaration and embrace the 2017 Plan of Action. He also worked with the Canadian Mission to the OAS in Washington which took a lead role in working toward the success of this first event.
