Preparing Humanity

Published: October 10, 2008, Author: JayTaber

Evolution of Consciousness

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights has established a web page for the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights and fundamental freedoms of indigenous people.

The procedures, reports and communications of the Special Rapporteur help to educate governments and indigenous activists, as well as to illustrate the limitations of international institutions in effectively addressing human rights abuses.

As always, there is not only a role for civil society to play in bringing an end to discrimination, but also a role for scholars and media in preparing humanity as a whole, cognitively, for the evolution of our shared consciousness, and the need to respect the existence of peoples living alongside, but independent from, the framework of state and market controls.

Chief George Manuel Memorial Indigenous Library

The library is dedicated to the memory of Secwepemc Chief George Manuel (1921-1989), to the nations of the Fourth World and to the elders and generations to come.
