It was established in 2000 and is one of three UN bodies mandated to deal specifically with indigenous people’s issues.
The Forum meets annually for two weeks, usually in New York, in May. The outcome of the session is a report containing recommendations for attention and adoption by the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC)
