Cameron, who was born in Kapuskasing, Ont., said he hopes to learn more about the issue this weekend when he meets with the Secretariat of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in New York.
The Hollywood heavyweight has spent the past several months speaking out on various green issues, including a Brazilian dam project that he says threatens to displace tens of thousands of people.

Cameron added that "Avatar"'s massive worldwide box office success was no small consolation.
"It's kind of like 'Avatar' has become a portal for me into a kind of a world of social responsibility that I've kind of embraced. It's all part of the overall Avatar juggernaut," he says of his new role as eco warrior.
"The Sternbeast is a creature that was basically completely taken out of the film," Cameron says. "Not because we didn't like him, we loved the Sternbeast. But when we took out the Sternbeast hunt, the other times that we saw the Sternbeast we took out as well."

"There's a danger of coming off as a kind of overnight expert but I have been studying this stuff for a long time, really for 20 years and I'm pretty up to speed on all the issues.

Cameron says "several million dollars" are being spent to finish off scenes that were cut from the initial release. He says that will be part of a summer re release for the 3D wonder, which will include another IMAX run.
The Canadian born filmmaker says he wants to learn more about the controversial Athabasca Oil Sands Project after being contacted by indigenous groups who are concerned by its impact.
