2017 marks 10 years since the United Nations adopted the declaration on the rights of Indigenous Peoples. A landmark document and the first of its kind, the declaration outlines the rights and freedoms to which all Indigenous communities around the world are entitled. This article will reflect on this document 10 years after its adoption. It will discuss the degree to which the declaration has been made policy in Peru, and the extent to which the rights outlined in the declaration are available to Peru’s Indigenous population.
