Adam, and others like him, 28 J E N S DA H L comes to the United Nations with a mandate and an issue to be presented. Although he only represents one indigenous organization, a group larger than his immediate constituency shares that issue. The mandates given to indigenous peoples when they enter the United Nations are important for their ability to operate in the space created by the indigenous peoples themselves and given the inherent limitations of the UN system, which also sets limits to or restricts the operational frames of the Indigenous Space.

Most African and many Asian governments did not participate or keep quiet. It was, in the first instance, a challenge for the indigenous caucus to create a consensus and keep the momentum and the agency up for two decades. This process revealed what, at times, looked like irreconcilable positions within the group of indigenous peoples (Åhrén 2007; Dahl 2009; Henriksen 2009) caused by factors that had less to do with cultural differences than their kinds of incorporation into the national and global system.

Only in very rare cases has the caucus intervened openly, in the self-identification of those persons who present themselves as indigenous, and some groups have used the inclusiveness of the caucus to investigate their own position in terms of being indigenous or not. From all continents, groups have tried to use the indigenous UN platform. Some of them have realized that this is not their forum, such as the Tamils from Sri Lanka; others, such as the Eritreans in 1983 (Stamatopoulou 1994, 69) and the PLO became persuaded that the WGIP was not the right UN body for them; yet others came to the indigenous meetings until they had achieved self-government or independence, such as the East Timorese and the Bougainvilleans (Papua New Guinea); and yet others try to use any international forum, such as the Dalits from India; finally there are others, such as the Rehoboth Basters (Namibia), who feel they have no alternative place to go.
