Updates include summaries of daily proceedings and photographs of events through the duration of the Permanent Forum. "I believe it's important that information about proceedings at the Permanent Forum be shared with as wide of an audience as possible as the decisions that are made in this fora have an impact on the lives of Indigenous Peoples across the globe," stated Alyssa at the opening session of the UNPFII.
