Indigenous Rights

Indigenous rights issues provide the overall canvas of our work as a collective. Manipur, being a home to many distinct indigenous peoples (over 35), our rights issues are inextricably linked to collective rights, traditional culture, indigenous knowledge, land and territories, natural heritage, self-determination and free and prior informed consent in addition to established constitutional and human rights. CSCHR constituent members are engaged in range of advocacy and awareness raising activities.
