Change the name of the "UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues"

Indigenous Peoples are not "issues" - we are Peoples. Indigenous Peoples have been working for the right to be called "Peoples" since well before the adoption of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) in 2007. Its time to change the name of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues to the UN Permanent Forum about Indigenous Peoples to be respectful to Indigenous Peoples and consistent with UNDRIP and the UN's Minimum Standard adopted by the United Nations General Assembly.
