This is very interesting. We definitely need more countries to support the tribal people and come up with the times!

Thank you for sharing this article.

The superior attitude of many people to tribal people has always puzzled me. They are human beings. That means that they have full human rights, at least in my opinion. I'm glad that they have ratified some of those human rights now. Actually, often they are the original owners of the land that the "superior" people inhabit. As such, they should have extra respect as well as rights.
