Tomorrow 9th August 2019 is World Indigenous Day

On December 23, 1994, the United Nations General Assembly adopted resolution 49/214, which decided to designate August 9 of each year of the International Decade of the World's Indigenous People as the International Day of the World's Indigenous People.

The International Day of the World's Indigenous People was initiated by the United Nations to strengthen international cooperation to address the problems faced by indigenous peoples and to increase public awareness of indigenous rights and culture through various activities.

It is estimated that there are 370 million indigenous people living in about 90 countries in the world, accounting for less than 5% of the world's population, but accounting for 15% of the world's poorest. Indigenous people use the vast majority of the world's approximately 7,000 languages ​​and represent 5,000 different cultures.

Indigenous peoples inherit and practice unique cultures and ways that are interrelated with other peoples and the environment. They retain the social, cultural, economic and political characteristics that differ from the mainstream society in which they live. Despite cultural differences between indigenous peoples around the world, protecting their rights as a unique nation is a common problem they face.

Over the years, indigenous peoples have been seeking identity, lifestyle and their rights in traditional lands, territories and natural resources. However, in the long history, their rights have been violated. Today, indigenous peoples can be said to be one of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable groups in the world. At present, the international community recognizes the need for special measures to protect the rights of indigenous peoples and to maintain their distinctive culture and way of life.

On the occasion of the International Aboriginal Day on August 9th, there will be Indians from North America, Berbers from North Africa, Masai from Kenya, Papua New Guinea from Oceania and many other Aboriginal people. Representatives of the nation came to the United Nations headquarters in Geneva to celebrate their own festivals in a unique way, with traditional singing and dancing, and to let more people know about Aboriginal culture through various activities.

In view of the 2019 International Year of Aboriginal Languages, this year’s commemoration was based on the theme “Indigenous Languages”.

The commemoration of the United Nations Headquarters will take place on August 9 from 10 am to 5 pm. At that time, a live webcast will be conducted.
