Education, Media, and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

Lorie M. Graham & Amy Van Zyl-Chavarro

Education and media are important societal tools for sustaining and transmitting cultures. Yet for Indigenous Peoples, just the opposite has been true for much of modern history.  They have been used to silence indigenous voices, support forced assimilation, and perpetuate inequalities and marginalization. This book examines the three articles of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples aimed at countering these injustices: Article 14 on the right to education, Article 15 on the right to non-discrimination and accuracy in public information, and Article 16 on the right to media.  It explores the intrinsic and instrumental value these international norms hold for self-determining indigenous polities, and how additional domestic laws and policies can lead to their robust implementation.
