Dear Relatives,

Good Greetings.

This event is being hosted by the Native American Caucus of the Arizona State Legislature, and being facilitated by our offices of the Nahuacalli, Embassy of the Indigenous Peoples.

As North American Regional Representative of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, Mr. Littlechild will be presenting critical first hand information regarding issues such as the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and the implications for policy at the local, state, federal and international levels throughout Indian Country and the world.

This event is one of a series of activities being organized by the Nahuacalli in conjunction with the annual Nican Tlacah Ilhuitl - Indigenous Peoples Day which is to be proclaimed by the City of Phoenix on March 12th, 2007.
