Description Indigenous Peoples in Canada actively participated in the drafting and negotiating of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), however the Canadian government maintains that UNDRIP is only an aspirational document. The author suggests that Indigenous people, communities, and lawyers start using UNDRIP when judging and developing laws, so as to normalize it in Canadian law.
