UN Event celebrates Aboriginals and other indigenous peoples

The Australian Mission to the United Nations held a celebration for the permanent forum on indigenous issues, with a reception in the General Assembly lobby.

Some 2,000 indigenous people from around the world are in New York for the annual meeting which ends this week. This year’s special theme is “The Doctrine of Discovery: Its Enduring Impact on Indigenous Peoples and the Right to Redress for Past Conquests." The Australian event was an opportunity for the country to celebrate its Indigenous Aborigines.
