"We Indigenous Peoples attach a great importance to treaties,
Agreements and other Constructive Accords that have been
reached between the Indigenous Peoples and the former
Colonial powers or States. They should be fully respected in
order to establish new and harmonious relationships based on
mutual respect and cooperation."
.........Rigoberta Menchu Tum.

Year of Indigenous People,
