International Day of the World’s Indigenous People, 9th of August

In 1994, the United Nations General Assembly decided that the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People will be observed on 9 August ever year, during the first International Decade of the Worlds Indigenous People. On 16 December 2005, the General Assembly adopted the Programme of Action for the Second International Decade of the World’s Indigenous People and adopted ‘Partnership for action and dignity’ as its theme. The International Day of the World’s Indigenous People was continued as a part of this Programme of Action. The day is observed in United Nations offices in New York, Geneva and other offices of the United Nations.
