The North American Indigenous Peoples' Caucus (NAIPC) invites you to attend the North American Indigenous Peoples’ Preparatory Meeting for the World Conference on Indigenous Peoples to take place in the Kumeyaay Territory (now commonly called “San Diego, California”) at the Sycuan Resort, February 28 - March 1, 2013.
This two-day meeting creates the opportunity for Indigenous Peoples and Nations to discuss and develop positions to advance forward in relation to the upcoming United Nations High Level Plenary to be called a World Conference on Indigenous Peoples (WCIP).
The General Assembly decided to organize a high-level plenary meeting of the General Assembly, to be known as the World Conference on Indigenous Peoples, to be held in September 2014, in order to share perspectives and best practices of the realization of the rights of indigenous peoples, including to pursue the objectives of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) (UNGA resolution A/C.3/65/L.22/Rev.1)
Participants are responsible for their own travel, accommodations, and most meals. Breakfast and lunch will be served each day.
