International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples

International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples

Every year, August 9 is commemorated as the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples.

Every year there is a theme, which lends itself to the direction the UN’s plan to continue to support the world’s indigenous populations.

This year’s International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples is devoted to the right to education.

“The right of indigenous peoples to education is protected by the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which in Article 14 states that “Indigenous peoples have the right to establish and control their educational systems and institutions providing education in their own languages, in a manner appropriate to their cultural methods of teaching and learning.”

Every year, the commemorations hope to spotlight the issues that the world’s indigenous populations face and bring attention to the present need to conserve the culture of these dwindling populations.
