[Michigan, August 9, 2022]:
The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) joins the global community in honoring and observing the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples that falls annually on August 9.
The General Assembly adopted the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples on September 13, 2017, a major milestone with respect to the cooperation and solidarity between indigenous peoples and Member States. According to the United Nations, there are about 370 million indigenous people living in 90 countries. Also, although indigenous people make up only about 5% of the world population, they, unfortunately, make up about 15% of the world’s poor.
This occasion reaffirms the importance of the global community’s work in support of the world’s indigenous peoples to ensure the preservation of their cultures, systems, and languages.
AHRC is committed to supporting, promoting, and advancing the human rights and human dignity of all the world’s peoples, especially the indigenous peoples who continue to face challenges to fully exercising their human rights.
