Photos from the International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples, 9 August 2013

See photos of hundreds of indigenous and non-indigenous rowers arriving by canoe at Pier 96 in Manhattan en route to UN headquarters in New York City after a 150-mile journey from Albany. The trek, which some completed on horseback, marks the 400-year anniversary of the signing of the Two Row Wampum Treaty, the first treaty between Dutch immigrants and the Iroquois.
