We, the Indigenous Peoples of Mother Earth gathered at the Kari-Oca I Sacred Kari-Oka Púku headquarters in Rio de Janeiro to participate in the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development Rio+20, thank the Indigenous Peoples of Brazil for welcoming us to their territories. We reaffirm our responsibility to speak out for the protection and well-being of Mother Earth, nature and future generations of our Indigenous Peoples and all humanity and life. We recognize the significance of this second convocation of the world's Indigenous Peoples and reaffirm the historic 1992 Kari-Oca I meeting, where the Indigenous Peoples issued the Kari-Oca Declaration and the Indigenous Peoples' Earth Charter. The Kari-Oca conference and the mobilization of Indigenous Peoples during the Earth Summit marked a breakthrough for the international movement for the rights of Indigenous Peoples and the important role we play in conservation and sustainable development. We also reaffirm the Manaus Declaration on the convening of Kari-Oca 2 as the international meeting of Indigenous Peoples in Rio+20.
