On Tuesday, October 30, join your host, Dr. J. Kehaulani Kauanui for a critical exploration of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples that was recently adopted by the United Nations General Assembly. The program will feature an interview with Tonya Gonnella Frichner(Onondaga Nation, Snipe Clan), founder and president of the American Indian Law Alliance. AILA is an indigenous, non-profit organization that works with Indigenous nations, communities and organizations in the struggle for sovereignty, human rights, and social justice. Topics for discussion will focus on the politics of indigenous self-determination under international law, the distinction between minorities and Indigenous peoples, and the decades-long struggle to draft and pass the Declaration,as well as the opposition by New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and the United States (the only four States that voted against it).
