Meeting of Indigenous Peoples in Alta, Norway

Last month I participated in a meeting of Indigenous Peoples in Alta, Norway.  This meeting was part of the preparatory process for the UN World Conference on Indigenous Peoples to be held in September 2014. As part of the process of disseminiating information about the World Conference and reporting back on developments at the Alta preparatory meeting, myself and two other delegate from Aotearoa have put together a de-brief paper which sets out some of the background to the Alta meeting and identifies key issues for consideration from this point on.  This hopefully provides a little context for the official final outcome document from the Alta meeting.
