It is not shocking to know that Indigenous Peoples in Nepal are unaware of the rights laid down in this declaration, because they have been subjugated for centuries and have been excluded and marginalized in all walks including education, politics, social, culture, economic and so forth. Therefore, Indigenous Media Foundation has made this effort to translate UDHR into their own mother tongues and make them
and their communities aware at least to some extent about their universal rights. It is hoped that this publication be great tool in the advocacy works relating to the rights of indigenous peoples.
We hereby would like to express profound gratitude to all journalists and officials of different organization of indigenous peoples who took up the responsibility of translating of UDHR in to their respective mother tongue. More importantly, we would like to express our profound gratitude to UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights-Geneva for providing financial assistant to make it possible and would like to thank everyone who directly and indirectly supported to make this work a success!
