Convention 169 was adopted by ILO in 1989. With its approval, the Organization aimed to update a prior convention (number 107), a treaty that promoted integration of indigenous peoples into the majority societies of the countries where they lived, and which is still in force in several countries. Up to date, Convention 169 has been ratified by twenty-two countries, most of them from Latin America.
