UN DRIP affirms the inherent or pre-existing collective human rights of Indigenous peoples, as well as the human rights of Indigenous individuals. UNDRIP supports the need for culture and ceremony within Indigenous communities and calls for greater acknowledgement of this work. Friendship Centre programming is rooted in rich and diverse Indigenous cultures and our work is essential to upholding the articles and rights affirmed in UNDRIP.
