The most regular examinations of indigenous issues by the Human Rights Committee in the reporting procedure and under the Optional Protocol have taken place in connection with Article 27: In those States in which ethnic, religious or linguistic minorities exist, persons belonging to such minorities shall not be denied the right, in community with the other members of their group, to enjoy their own culture, to profess and practise their own religion, or to use their own language. The examination of indigenous rights has proceeded despite the fact that Article 27 deals with ‘minorities’ and not indigenous groups.
