Erin M. Genia*
This paper aims to be a useful guide to understanding the
landscape and language of indigenous cultural rights. By
providing the reader with information on the imperative and
complex issues that surround restoring, revitalizing and
preserving cultural resources, this paper reveals the specific
language associated with cultural rights, as well as a
landscape of issues to explore. It attempts to answer the
questions, How do tribes define cultural rights? Why are
tribal cultural rights in need of protection? and, What is
being done to protect them? In order to truly understand
how to protect indigenous peoples' cultural rights and why it
is so critical an issue, it is necessary to define key terms,
provide a historical context, and identify the many ways in
which cultural rights are threatened With a focus on
solutions for preventing the continued cultural exploitation
of indigenous people, this paper will address what activities
tribes, intertribal organizations, international bodies, and
U.S. laws are engaging in to ensure that Native peoples'
cultures thrive.
