Indigenous Peoples at the United Nations

3,000 Indigenous people were invited to speak at the United Nations in New York City. They were asked to share their native insights and possible solutions to the global environmental crisis.

“There is a law, Madame President, that is not considered in the Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples…but that my tribe, the Aymara, respects. It is the law of Pachacuti, that says the Earth is in a time of recovery. In order to heal, just like us, the Earth must rest. The Earth knows when it is time to rest. We say, Madame President, that we must let the Earth rest so that it can protect us in the future.”
