Re: “Popular Fremont Hiking Spot for Selfies Prompts Parking Lot on Sacred Land

In response to imtnbke's comment about the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) having not being adopted by the United States:

Actually, the Obama administration officially reversed the former US position on the UNDRIP, explicitly stating US endorsement of the Declaration:

Furthermore, the state of California officially endorsed the UNDRIP in 2014 with Assembly Joint Resolution No. 42:

Also, setting a leading example, this year (2016) the City of Berkeley officially adopted the UNDRIP as municipal policy:
