Based on various international sources, this publication gives an overview of events affecting the indigenous peoples of the world during 1898. Part I, the International Work Group for Indigenous Affairs (IWGIA) Annual Report, describes the programs and activities of IWGIA during 1989. Part II addresses issues of political problems and progress, genocide, land disputes, health, and human rights. After an obituary for George Manuel, a great North American Indian leader, the yearbook focuses on particular geographic locations. A map for each section shows the names and locations of the indigenous people, as well as the population of the area. The report discusses the following areas: (1) the Arctic; (2) North America; (3) Central America and Mexico; (4) South America; (5) the Pacific; (6) Australia and Aotearoa (New Zealand); (7) East Asia; (8) Southeast Asia; (9) South Asia; (10) West and Central Asia; (11) Europe and North Asia; (12) Northern Africa; (13) West Africa; (14) the Horn of Africa; (15) East Africa; (16) Central Africa; and (17) South of Africa. References are listed after each section. Part III includes a series of legal documents on indigenous rights and position papers presented to IWGIA. Part IV summarizes important issues in indigenous movements, including those affecting indigenous women, indigenous people in the Soviet North, and land titling in Peru. (KS)
