Advancing the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

OUR PARTNERS

OUR MISSION

OUR WORK

We believe in the importance of making competent counsel available to indigenous peoples around the world.

Indigenous peoples are consistently underrepresented in domestic and international legal frameworks. As human rights norms become more integrated into dominant legal systems, IR Group uses innovative and creative methods to empower indigenous communities in the advancement and protection of their rights and interests. By bringing together advocates who are both legally and culturally competent, IR Group helps to fill those gaps in the status quo.
