Kiruna Declaration on Human Rights

World Council of Indigenous Peoples, Kiruna, Sweden, 27 September 1977.

Article 2

    We, therefore, wish to make clear those irrevocable and inborn rights which are due to us in our capacity as Aboriginals:
      2. Right to maintain our culture, language and traditions in freedom;...
      14. Right to an appropriate education in accordance with our culture and out traditions, without any foreign elements and within the framework of an educational system which recognises the values of our culture and acknowledges an official status to our language at all educational levels.
