This document contains the four 1992 English-language issues of the IWGIA newsletter and the four corresponding issues in Spanish. These newsletters provide educators with a resource on the history, current conditions, and struggles for self-determination of indigenous peoples around the world. One issue focuses exclusively on Africa. The other three issues carry articles on indigenous peoples in Mexico, the United States, Central America, South America, the Arctic, and Asia. Articles cover the following topics: (1) the effects of colonization and Western domination in alienating indigenous peoples from their land, knowledge, belief systems, customary laws, and sustainable economic activities; (2) issues pertaining to the environmental rights of indigenous people and the exploitation of territorial lands and natural resources; (3) establishment of adequate government social, health, education, economic, and employment policies that take into account indigenous culture; (4) information on the Draft Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples proposed by the United Nation Working Group; (5) descriptions of international assistance programs fostering the economic development of developing countries; and (6) need for formal education to assist in the transmission of cultural values and beliefs of indigenous peoples.
