International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples 2021

International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples is commemorated annually on 9 August to raise awareness of the needs of indigenous peoples globally.

By resolution 49/214 of 23 December 1994, the UN General Assembly decided that the Day would be observed on 9 August every year. The date marks the day of the first meeting, in 1982, of the UN Working Group on Indigenous Populations of the Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights.
