A statement submitted to an intergovernmental committee on the convention of biological diversity. This discusses the rights of indigenous people the world over and the importance of their knowledge. In regards to their rights, they state some specific actions to help stop the exploitation of their land and their knowledge. While offering their help with issues such as conservation, they feel they are unjustly deprived of the rewards and benefits made possible because of their help. Together with government organizations, they will help restore the earth to a more natural state to the benefit of all.
