Indigenous Peoples Caucus meets in Geneva
The Indigenous Peoples Caucus meets in Geneva, Switzerland, to discuss the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The United Nations general assembly adopted the declaration last year but Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States -- the countries with the most significant indigenous populations -- voted against it.

Despite the objections, the caucus will discuss how to implement the declaration. The Navajo Nation is sending four delegates to the meeting.
