Although the UN Document Protection of the Heritage of Indigenous People (generally referred to as the "Daes Report" in my book) is not, to my knowledge, available on line in the exact form that I used when writing the book, its general principles are reiterated in a 2000 document called Report of the seminar on the draft principles and guidelines for the protection of the heritage of indigenous people. For a response to this report by Yozo Yokota and the Saami Council, click here. You may also want to browse UN documents and fact-sheets devoted to indigenous issues, which offer a useful view of the UN's current approach to heritage protection. [May 2007: Many thanks to Carine Ayele Durand of Cambridge for helping me to update these links. I confess, though, that the website of the UN High Commissioner on Human Rights remains one of the most byzantine I've ever encountered, which may say something about the organization that sponsors it.]
