In spite of the fast-growing literature on indigenous peoples and self-determination, there is a striking absence of research into the gendered processes and effects of indigenous self-determination or, more generally, indigenous women and self-determination. This article examines the interconnections between indigenous self-determination and indigenous women's rights with a particular focus on the question of violence against women. It contends that for indigenous self-determination to be successful it must also address the question of violence against indigenous women. The article argues for a specific human rights framework that simultaneously accounts for indigenous self-determination and human rights violations of indigenous women.
