CFSC (Quakers) Indigenous Rights Icon Small

To celebrate our 90th anniversary we’re digging into our archives. One find was this video of Indigenous Rights Program Coordinator Jennifer Preston, shot by associate member Don Alexander in early 2008, a few months after the United Nations had adopted the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. In the video, Jennifer tells the behind-the-scenes story of the negotiation process that led to the adoption of the Declaration and how it was almost stalled after 20 years of discussions!
