Abstract
In the post or neo-colonial era, the question of fair and equitable treatment of indigenous peoples remains a subject of international political and legal discourse. Efforts have been made to study ways of promoting and protecting indigenous rights and to develop international norms for the protection of these rights. These efforts have sprung forth a plethora of questions; these questions include 'who qualifies as indigenous peoples?' and 'what rights do they enjoy under international law.' This thesis takes a cursory look at the conceptual underpinnings of indigenous peoples and specifically evaluates their right to culture in the parlance of international law.
