Every August 9th, countries around the world celebrate the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People. The event is to protect and promote the rights of the indigenous population as well as to recognize the contributions and achievements that indigenous people make to improve issues of global concern. It was first pronounced in December 1994 by the General Assembly of the United Nations. On August 9th, 1982, the UN Working Group on Indigenous Populations of the Subcommission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights held their first meeting.
