« Indigenous peoples’ concept of sovereignty is intimately linked to their culture, their language, and their land. These threeessential components of their self-determination have been,and remain, under existential threat. This essay explores howinternational law has responded to Indigenous peoples’ demandsfor cultural survival, appraising progress made and suggestingfurther improvements to the international legal regime. In doingso, the essay focuses on the 2007 UN Declaration on the Rightsof Indigenous Peoples, overwhelmingly passed by the UN GeneralAssembly, as well as pertinent treaty and customary international law ».
