SAN FRANCISCO -- Lakota Bill Means describes the long struggle for recognition of Indigenous Peoples rights at the United Nations, in this video recorded live at AIM West Conference in November of 2013.

Means describes how four countries -- US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand -- initially voted against the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Further, even after approval, the US voted in favor with "reservations," as a slap in the face to Native Americans.

In his concluding comments, Means describes the current struggle of Indigenous Peoples to obtain observer status at the United Nations.
