The Indigenous Peoples' Centre for Documentation, Research and Information (Docip) was created in 1978 at the request of the indigenous peoples and it retains custody of thousands of documents produced within the framework of United Nations (UN) forums in Geneva and New York. In order to guarantee the ongoing accessibility of the documents, with their treasure house of indigenous memories, Docip conserves them physically and digitally. The nominated heritage hosts unique documents created by indigenous people around the globe on behalf of their communities. They contain juridical, historical, cultural arguments and claims on a variety of topics addressed by the UN, and important for the development of international law, the advancement of indigenous people's rights at a national level.
