Indigenous peoples are inheritors and practitioners of unique cultures and ways of relating to people and the environment.
Despite their cultural differences, indigenous people from around the world share, common problems related to the protection of their rights as distinct peoples.
In order to raise awareness of the needs of these population groups, every 9 August commemorates the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, chosen in recognition of the first meeting of the UN Working Group on Indigenous Populations held in Geneva in 1982.
On Indigenous Peoples Day, we praise the historical backdrop of our progenitors and their way of life and perceive that their commitments run profoundly through our country.
If not for them, we would have never understood the real culture of our land.
Happy Indigenous Peoples’ Day!
