Navajo Charges Against US

The Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission response to the periodic review of UN member states includes charges against the US government for failure to respect religious freedom, failure to address land claims, forced relocations, and opposition to sovereignty over indigenous resources. As one of only four countries in the world that voted against the 2007 UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the United States remains a major global deterrent to human rights for native societies. The Navajo will present their case before the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva next month.
