August 9th is the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People
The survival of indigenous traditions, history and culture is of great importance to UNPO. Their survival is jeopardized with the increasingly violence and destruction of the social and physical environments where they live. To survive, the process of recognition of indigenous rights is absolutely necessary for the maintenance of indigenous cultures.
UNPO is dedicated to creating collaborative relationships across indigenous members. A lot has been accomplished since NGOs and indigenous communities ignited a long struggle to halt their marginalization.
This issue of UNPO Newsletter celebrates our indigenous members, but also takes the opportunity to highlight their struggles in defending their culture and land rights.
