CHAPTER 1 THE UNITED NATIONS AND THE INDIGENOUS SPACE Jens Dahl I ndigenous peoples from all parts of the world have learned to use the United Nations and the international legal system to promote their rights and interests. Observers agree that they have been able to achieve results far exceeding those of other groups.
