How long will it take posthumans - ie: avatars, robots, intelligent agents - to achieve human rights? This question not only reflects on problems associated with technological advances but also asks how we come to understand what it is to be human and, perhaps most importantly, what are basic huiman rights in the first place? It is my observation that the ways we are approaching cyberspace are very much predicated upon colonial business as usual. It can be argued that avatars and other intelligent agents are a type of indigenous intelligence to cyberspace. If so, what does it mean that we are tackling the problems of exploiting cyberspace without any consideration whatsoever of this matter? Will this come back to haunt us in the future? And returning to the "real world", how can we gain insight into the current exploitation of indigenous rights from a more empathetic position?
