Kari-oca Declaration and indigenous peoples’ Earth Charter
World Conference of Indigenous Peoples1992
We, the Indigenous Peoples of the Kari-Oca Conference, have made our Declaration of our intentions for the future. Our Declaration is for ourselves. In the spirit of our ancestors and in harmony with one another at Kari-Oca. Kari-Oca represents five hundred years of survival for the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas, Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and the Pacific. Our peoples came together to discuss our own agenda in the areas of Indigenous Spirituality, International Law, Human Rights, Land, Territories, Environment, Culture and Science, and Intellectual Property. The Kari-Oca Declaration is in keeping with our spirituality. The Kari-Oca Declaration is a prayer that our ancestors and future generations will help us.
