"The Declaration is a visionary step towards addressing the human rights of Indigenous Peoples. It sets out a framework on which States can build or rebuild their relationships with Indigenous Peoples...[I]t provides a momentous opportunity for States and Indigenous Peoples to strengthen their relationships, promote reconciliation and ensure that the past is not repeated."
