The International Labour Organization Convention (No.107) Concerning the Protection and Integration of Indigenous and other Tribal and Semi-Tribal Populations in Independent Countries was signed 16 June 1957 and entered into force 2 June 1959. The Convention was closed to further ratifications in September 1991, when ILO Convention No. 169 entered into force. It will cease to be in force with respect to those states which ratify the latter.
Governments shall adopt measures, appropriate to the social and cultural characteristics of the populations concerned, to make known to them their rights and duties, especially in regard to labour and social welfare.
