The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in September 2007 is a landmark treaty by the United Nations and the global communities. Despite the efforts and progress, the United States is only one of a few nations that has not ratify this treaty. In addition, it is also necessary and appropriate for legislators to pass legislation to include native Hawaiian (in addition to any other indigenous group that have been outcasts or excluded)  with indigenous status. And to recognize their rights and dignity as specify in the Declarations of Indigenous Rights and Universal Human Rights. Ratification of the treaty is critical and urgent for continuing progress on civil rights, human rights, dignity, and well being in this nation and for bolstering efforts to support and advance global democracy, liberty, justice, inclusiveness, diversity, pluralism, peace, harmony, security, the common good, environment protection/conservation/revival, prosperity, universal human rights, dignity, and well being worldwide.
