White House Tribal Nations Conference 2010

President Barack Obama announced Thursday at the White House Tribal Nations Conference that his administration will support the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The announcement removes the United States as the last remaining developed country that had not yet embraced the declaration, which recognizes and protects the world's 370 million indigenous peoples' rights to self-determination and protection of their lands and resources, among other rights.
