5 Courses on Indigenous Peoples’ Activism, Culture and Worldviews

In 2007 the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, setting minimum standards for the survival, dignity and well-being of indigenous peoples and communities. Until today the document is the most comprehensive international instrument for the protection of indigenous peoples’ rights.Despite these efforts, indigenous communities are continuing to face countless issues including lack of political representation, economic exclusion, racism and discrimination and the violation of their resource and land rights.To help defend and promote the human rights of indigenous peoples, it is essential to understand the issues they are facing, their unique history, culture and worldviews.We have compiled a list of 5 courses to learn more about indigenous peoples. All courses in this list can be audited for free. You can opt-in for a paid certificate for an extra fee. Financial aid is available for those who qualify through the course providers.
