1989- “Indian Self-Determination the Ideal and Indian Self-Governance the Reality” – Joe DeLaCruz Speech

No right is more sacred to a nation, to a people, than the right to freely determine its social, economic, political and cultural future, without external interference. The fullest expression of this right occurs when a nation freely governs itself We call the exercise of this right Self-Determination. The practice of this right is Self-Government.
