About the International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples

The International Day of the World's Indigenous People is observed by the International community every year on 9 August. 

The Day provides an opportunity to raise awareness of indigenous peoples' cultures and the great diversity that they represent. It is also an occasion to redouble efforts to address issues of exclusion, discrimination and poverty that are still the daily reality for many of these peoples.
