|In this article, we endeavor to understand whether the norm of national self-determination, evolving from principle to right, can be extended to Indigenous Peoples. We shall start with the historical development of right to self-determination followed by an inventory of relevant regulations in international conventions. After exploring some theoretical controversies, we will examine the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Further, we will probe the concept of Indigenous ＂People＂ and the content of Indigenous right to self-determination. Conclusions will be on the limitation of internal self-determination, and the possibility of fresh interpretations.
