Permanent Forum On Indigenous Issues – Side event
“Human Rights and the Environment; Protecting the Earth for the Seventh Generation”

14 May, 1.30 pm – 3 pm, Dag Hammarskjöld Library Auditorium – Screening of “America’s Last Frontier”
Indigenous Delegation United Nations, NYC

The American Indian Law Alliance has hosted a parallel event at the United Nations Permanent Forum On Indigenous Issues, “Human Rights and the Environment: Protecting the Earth for the Seventh Generation.”

Robby Romero (of Apache descent) UN Ambassador of Youth for the Environment and Native rocker of the band, Red Thunder, introduced his film “America’s Last Frontier,” which addresses the world’s last wild places and the Indigenous people of the Gwich’in Nation who are working to protect their territories from proposed oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The film puts a personal face on the importance of human rights regarding the resources of Indigenous peoples.

After the film Robby Romero, with Indigenous leaders Sarah James (spokesperson of the Gwich’in Steering Committee); Christopher Peters (Pohlik-lah) Executive Director of the Seventh Generation Fund; Oren Lyons (Faithkeeper Onondaga Nation) Haudenosaunee Environmental Task Force; and Robert Gough Esq. (Rosebud Sioux Tribe delegate and Secretary of the Intertribal Council on Utility Policy) shared some examples of best practices on our territories.

Panelists Esmeralda Brown, Co-Chair, Southern Caucus, Committee on Sustainable Development (CSD), Mililani Trask (Native Hawaiian) Pacific Representative to the Permanent Forum On Indigenous Issues, as well as a representative from the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) addressed how the Permanent Forum, UNEP, the CSD and other UN agencies can best partner with Indigenous Peoples to protect our lands and resources for our children, our children yet unborn, the Seventh Generation yet to come. Tonya Gonnella Frichner (Onondaga) President and founder of the American Indian Law Alliance, facilitated the panel discussion.
