The media is focus of International Day of World's Indigenous Peoples

Grand Chief Edward John of Canada, Chair of this year's UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII), briefs correspondents on the Forum's high-level event

Pop star Justin Bieber, a Canadian, says because he has indigenous heritage, he is entitled to free gas when he travels in Canada.

This, says Edward John, Chairman of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, is one of the many misconceptions about the indigenous that abound.

The media – television, radio, film, social media – can help correct these misconceptions.

He spoke to the UN's William Bergman on the occasion of the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples.
