International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples

Its International Day of the World’s Indigenous People! On September 13, 2007, the General Assembly adopted the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People. This declaration set the standards for the survival, dignity and well-being of the indigenous peoples throughout the world. The proclamation elaborates on the standard of existing human rights and fundamental freedoms as they apply to the specifications of indigenous peoples. Over the last decade, the implementation of the Declaration has achieved some major successes in the national, regional and international levels. 




There is an estimated 370 million indigenous people in the world, living across 90 countries. They speak an overwhelming majority of the world’s estimated 7,000 languages and represent around 5,000 different cultures! Unfortunately, indigenous peoples today are arguably among the most disadvantaged and vulnerable groups of people in the world. Today is all about promoting and protecting the rights of indigenous people all over the world and to commend the achievements and contributions that indigenous people make to improve world issues such as environmental protection!
