1 May 2017, New York

Madame Chairperson of the Permanent Forum, Distinguished Members of the Permanent Forum, Chairperson of the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Excellencies, indigenous representatives, ladies and gentlemen,

I am grateful for the opportunity to address the Permanent Forum and all those attending this session to celebrate and share some views on this year's Permanent Forum's topic on the "Tenth Anniversary of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples: measures taken to implement the Declaration". As I already shared some of my views during the General Assembly High Level event earlier this week, I will not dwell very much on this. I will just highlight a few points which I think are important to reiterate. I will report on how I have implemented my mandate in the past year and during my third year as Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous people.
