These designs and the use of them are in direct violation of the Indigenous peoples of the pacific, and is furthermore in violation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Article 31:

1. Indigenous peoples have the right to maintain, control, protect and develop their cultural heritage, traditional knowledge and traditional cultural expressions, as well as the manifestations of their sciences, technologies and cultures, including human and genetic resources, seeds, medicines, knowledge of the properties of fauna and flora, oral traditions, literatures, designs, sports and traditional games and visual and performing arts. They also have the right to maintain, control, protect and develop their intellectual property over such cultural heritage, traditional knowledge, and traditional cultural expressions.

2. In conjunction with indigenous peoples, States shall take effective measures to recognize and protect the exercise of these rights.

We wish to have these designs removed from Nike's production line and we wish to seek action against the corporation for the exploitation of an indigenous people and their arts.

To:
Nike, Nike Australia Pty., Ltd.

Cease the production of the Nike Pro Tattoo Tech Tights.

Sincerely,
