The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) was adopted on the 13th September 2007 by the General Assembly of the United Nations.

It is the most comprehensive document on the rights of Indigenous people in the world. Indigenous peoples also had the opportunity to be involved in the drafting of this declaration!

UNDRIP sets out the universal rights of Indigenous people all over the world, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mob in Australia. It elaborates on existing rights and ensures a cultural lens on how the rights apply to us. Some of the rights outlined in UNDRIP include, the right to not to be forced into assimilation, the right to not be forced from our lands and the right to practice culture.
