The Nayzul Declaration

Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Rigoberta Menchu-Tum, Grand Chief Edward John, Hereditary Chief of the Tl’azt’en Nation and member of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, President of the Sami Parliament Aili Keskitalo, and Chief Arvol Looking Horse, 19th Keeper of the Sacred Bundle and Spiritual Leader of the Lakota, Dakota, Nakota people have put forward the “Nayzul Declaration”.

In collaboration with the First Nations Summit, the International Center for Dialogue and Peacebuilding will support the advancement of The Nayzul Declaration — the outcome of the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize Forum Oslo.

The Nayzul Declaration calls for a constructive and focused multi-stakeholder dialogue process that includes indigenous peoples, state representatives, industry groups and other relevant bodies to co-create inclusive strategies to address the steady rise in extractive industries, including the ever-growing demand for minerals that make a rapid clean energy transition possible.
