U-N expert comes to Tulsa University to hear from tribal leaders

James Anaya at T-U

A special representative of the United Nations comes to Tulsa University to hear concerns of Native Americans. James Anaya is an independent expert designated by the U-N to report on the rights of indigenous people. He heard from a myriad of tribal leaders on issues from water rights and gaming to domestic violence and fears the Keystone Pipeline will disturb sacred grounds.

Several tribal leaders asked for a seat at the United Nations representing indigenous people. Anaya will file a report on what he’s learned with the United Nations Human Rights Council.
