Abstract

Indigenous peoples have maintained key features of their identity against many challenges over time. Under the banner-cry of cultural diversity, the modem community of states has recognized their rights to their culture, their self-determination, and their land. These novel communal rights are necessary elements of a legal regime that responds fully to human needs and aspirations.

Keywords: Indigenous, indigenous peoples, indigenous rights, indigenous peoples’ rights, holistic, human rights, collective rights, rights to land, autonomy, cultural heritage, cultural diversity
