12-11-2003 4:45 pm "The right to education for indigenous peoples" is the topic of a discussion to be organized by UNESCO at its Headquarters on November 17 (Room XI, 2.30 p.m.) as part of the 1995-2004 International Decade of the World's Indigenous People, who number 350 million in more than 70 countries.


Two leading defenders of indigenous peoples' rights will take part. One is Rodolfo Stavenhagen, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms of Indigenous Peoples, who teaches sociology at the Colegio de Mexico, in Mexico and has done research on social development, agrarian problems, ethnic conflicts, indigenous peoples and human rights.

The other is Ole Henrik Magga, President of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, who teaches Sami linguistics (Lapp) at Sami University College in Guovdageaidnu (Kautokeino), Norway, and was the first president of the Sami Parliament, from 1989 to 1997. Several representatives of Mexican indigenous groups (the Tzeltal, Purepecha, Mixe, Zapotec and Amuzgo peoples) will also be present.

The debate will be preceded (1.30-2.30 p.m. in the Hall Ségur) by a performance of the "Banda de Tlayacapan," Mexico's oldest musical group, on the theme of the cultural memory of indigenous peoples.

An exhibition of works by the photographers Angeles Torrejon, Arturo Ramos Guerrero, Frida Hartz and Maria Elena Mezquita will take place at the same time (in the lobby of Room XI).

Journalists wishing to attend these events should register with the Press Service. Tel: +33 (0)1 4568-1747
