United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People



President Obama declared his support for the non-binding UN resolution, which declares "indigenous peoples have a right to lands and resources they traditionally occupied or otherwise used." As I tell WND (in a story with an unrealistically scary headline), one can expect tribes to use such a resolution in an attempt to relitigate long-resolved land disputes. Walter Olson's excellent forthcoming book, Schools for Misrule has a chapter on such litigation.
