Indigenous peoples of Africa like the hunter-gatherer San of Southern Africa, the Pygmies of Central Africa and pastoralists like the Maasai and Samburu have lived in harmony with the environment for millenia and exemplify sustainable living. Indigenous peoples inhabit some of the areas of highest biodiversity in the world and their profound knowledge of plants, animals, and the rhythms and cycles of nature needs to inform attitudes and decisions made by conservation and environmental movements, not only locally but worldwide. The main publishers of information and stories about indigenous Africans are foreign researchers and journalists, not the people themselves, and as such the documents are often not accurate. These publications also rarely find their way back to grassroots communities in any form the people can understand, relate to or use. A lot of news about Indigenous People in Africa is sensationalised and focuses on crises like the starving pastoralists of Ethiopia or Pygmies in the Ugandan forests attacking tourists. This tends to paint a negative picture of traditional ways of life in Africa. Yet every day there are also positive stories to be told about almost forgotten indigenous communities bravely fighting to conserve catchments and other sensitive areas from mining, logging, oil drilling, dams, commercial plantations, land invasions, etc.

The San people said the agreement was a "joyous moment" South Africa's indigenous San peoples have signed a deal ensuring they will profit from a diet drug being developed from a plant they have used for generations. Under the terms of the agreement, the San people will receive regular fees as the drug - developed from a plant used to suppress the appetite - passes various stages on the way to market. They will also receive a proportion of the royalties if and when it becomes commercially available, which could be in as little as five years. The San people hailed the agreement as a "joyous moment". "In the past, it used to be the norm to exploit their knowledge and culture but today is an example of how things have changed," said Kxao Moses, chairman of the Working Group of Indigenous Minorities in Southern Africa. Harnessing knowledge The San people, who number about 100,000 and who originate in the region of the Kalahari desert in south-west Africa, have used a plant called hoodia to suppress hunger pangs on long hunting trips for generations.

Our respect for nature must not be limited to protected areas, but must encompass the earth; Taking into account the special relationship we have with our lands, territories and the resources therein, we reaffirm our holistic vision which strongly binds biodiversity and cultural identity and unites a people with its territory;

Projects Human Rights Publications Annual Reports and Annual Accounts Project work in Africa
Aims and objectives
One level is:
the support to lobby for promotion and protection of the human rights of indigenous peoples in Africa at an African wide regional level. This lobby work is concretely carried out towards the African Commission on Human and Peoples Rights.
The other level is:
project support to indigenous organizations at local level.
These two main areas of support have different character, but it is being aimed to integrate them in order to achieve synergetic effects.
Focus on land rights, human rights and capacity building
recognition of land rights for indigenous peoples
protection and promotion of the human rights of indigenous peoples
capacity building of indigenous organizations.
  • Kenya and Tanzania
However, IWGIA has also developed support for indigenous peoples and their organizations in Land rights Dispossession of traditional lands and territories is one of the major problems of indigenous peoples in Africa. Dominating development paradigms in Africa perceive the modes of production of indigenous peoples - such as pastoralism and hunting/gathering - as primitive, non-productive and not in line with the modernization aspirations of present day African states. Therefore many development policies are either directly or indirectly geared towards weakening/eradicating the modes of production of indigenous peoples. In the name of national economic development, various policies are being put in place, which dispossess indigenous peoples of their lands and natural resources and which threaten to undermine their cultures and survival as distinct peoples. Activities that have been undertaken in the name of national development and that have at the same time undermined the land bases and livelihoods of indigenous peoples include establishment of national parks and game reserves, massive logging of forests, large infrastructure projects such as dam and pipeline constructions, mineral exploration, commercial hunting schemes, large scale agricultural projects etc.

The BS in Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS): Critical Questions for Indigenous Peoples
Debra Harry and Le`a Malia Kanehe Introduction
That said, what does benefit sharing mean for Indigenous peoples? What incentive do we have to participate in these agreements, particularly if our ownership rights are sidelined or marginalized? What are the implications of participating in benefit sharing arrangements for genetic resources? How do Indigenous peoples move beyond the narrow market-oriented models being presented to them? These are some of the questions to be discussed in this chapter. I. Conflicting Sovereignties over Natural Resources A. Indigenous Peoples Permanent Sovereignty over Genetic Resources
Despite the existence of these international human rights standards, it is widely recognized that States often deny or diminish the ability of Indigenous peoples to exercise the right of self-determination. Nevertheless, the right of self-determination is the fundamental premise upon which Indigenous peoples have asserted our proprietary, inherent, and inalienable rights over our traditional knowledge and biological resources.

lack people in Mexico? The looks of amazement and disbelief on the faces of first-time viewers of Tony Gleaton's photographs are eloquent testimony to the significance of these images. Particularly to those who have little or no knowledge about societies beyond the borders of the United States, these photographs are a revelation. They force us to rethink many of our preconceptions not only about our southern neighbor but more generally about issues such as race, ethnicity, culture, and national identity. Not long ago, on a hot and humid July day, I rode with friends to the town of Yanga, in the state of Veracruz on Mexico's gulf coast. In recent years, Yanga has received considerable attention as one of the Americas' earliest "maroon communities": settlements founded by fugitive slaves. Originally known as San Lorenzo de los Negros, in 1932 the town was renamed for its founder, a rebellious Muslim man from what is now Nigeria. In 1609, after resisting recapture for 38 years, Yanga negotiated with the Spaniards to establish a free black community.

It may be reproduced for non-profit educational use if this notice appears on the reproduction. This paper was originally produced in 1992, prior to the INTERNET and the explosion of information it has engendered. In updating it, I have tried to create links to online materials on indigenous peoples and ethnic minorities rights under international law. This paper is not meant to be a comprehensive guide to information on indigenous people. It is meant to be a guide to researching international law and indigenous peoples and ethnic minorities rights. This paper was originally delivered as part of a program on indigenous peoples rights. Other speakers, Professor George S. Grossman , and Professor Kirke Kickingbird , covered American Indians. Because of that, this paper's coverage of American Indians is limited. In 1996, Professor
