This document was specifically created for Indigenous adolescents informing them of their rights and protections.
The Declaration, which applies to indigenous peoples as individuals and as a group, explains how the rights of indigenous peoples – including indigenous young people – are to be protected by governments around the world. This text provides a summary of some of the important language, themes and articles of the document so that young people can continue to play an important role in ensuring the Declaration is fully implemented around the world.
