Indigenous Cultural Representation

Robert Albro, Rockefeller Humanities Fellow, CFCH, Suzan Shown Harjo, Cheyenne and Hodulgee Muscogee, President of the Morning Star Institute, and Keith Harper, Cherokee, Attorney at the Native American Rights Fund, all examine key issues surrounding Indigenous cultural representation and self-determination, problems surrounding the inclusion of Indigenous issues in UNESCO and government discourse, and the need to advocate for recognition of collective, communal and community cultural rights in the trade and ownership of culture and cultural goods and services.
