Indigenous Rights in International Law

Defend the Sacred

Princeton University Press

This chapter extends the discussion of “Religion as Peoplehood” beyond the very real limits of federal Indian law. It explores the possibilities and drawbacks of increasing appeals to Indigenous rights under international human rights law. The possibilities of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples are quite rich, as are its implementation apparatus for protecting Native religions under Indigenous rights. However, without having to define them as such, the approach is slow to grow domestic legal teeth in the United States. Its incremental development as authoritative law can, as this chapter shows, be strengthened by making clearer associations with U.S. religious freedom law.
