Not wanting to get into 1,2 or more Americas issue.
But do want to bring up the issue of indigenous populations whatever the region. I have been working with indigenous population in Europe, the Sámi, for years. They are not represented in Euralo any more than the populations that Eric is referring to are represented in Naralo, though there may be individual members of those populations participating
Just as the Island populations are looking for a cross-regional way to get representation, is there any value, or interest, in looking at ways to obtain cross-regional representation for Indigenous populations. If there is interest in this within the RALO, would this be worth adding to the statement? Something like:
Naralo also supports investigating way to increase the participation of Indigenous populations, especially those whose cultural territory cuts across regional boundaries.
