This article discusses the 10th Indigenous Fund Assembly, held in November 2012. It provides a brief summary of the topics covered at the gathering, focusing on the contentious issue of prior consultation of indigenous communities in national policy and project implementation. The article also discusses the notion of 'buen vivir' (good living), and how this concept, along with human rights, could be utilized in creating more appropriate indicators to measure progress in development and rights for indigenous people in Latin America and the Caribbean.
