Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues


The Permanent Forum on Indigenous issues is a humanitarian/political body within the United Nations. The Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues also known as PFII represents, according to the UN 370 million Indigenous People in over 16 countries around the world. The mandate of the forum is to discuss issues pertaining to the social development, culture, environment, education, health and human rights, and of course environmental rights and issues. In a recent interview on Democracy Now! Casey Camp-Horinek, a member of the Ponca Nation of Oklahoma addresses the direct impact of global warming and environmental misdeeds threatening and/or decimating Native or Indigenous tribes, groups, clans, populations.. The interviews are worth reading, listening, and or watching.
And if so inspired.
