"We, the indigenous peoples, maintain our inherent rights to self-determination. We have always had the right to decide our own forms of government, to use our own ways to raise and educate our children, to our own cultural identity without interference… We continue to maintain our rights as peoples despite centuries of deprivation, assimilation, and genocide."
