Problem

Denial of right of indigenous peoples to participate in political processes

Incidence:

The indigenous forest dwelling peoples of Zaire, Cameroon, Gabon and other nations continue to be denied their basic right to political self-determination. Political self-determination is also denied the Negrito peoples of the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Andaman Islands of India. The reservation policy of Brazil, as applied to native Brazilian forest-dwellers, allows for no genuine self-determination.
