  Our View on Rights of Indigenous Peoples

The office of the Anglican Observer has been deeply involved with the ongoing struggle of indigenous peoples since the beginning of the ministry in the early 1990's. Among other activities, the Observer actively participates in the Working Group on Indigenous Peoples, which is their primary vehicle for NGO representation at the UN. The current Anglican Observer, Archdeacon Taimalelagi Matalavea, an indigenous person herself, continues to make the issues of indigenous peoples one of her priorities.
