Top 25 Wins for Indigenous Peoples in the Last 5 Years
August 13th, 2021
The International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples is observed on August 9 each year to promote and protect the rights of Indigenous Peoples around the world. The date commemorates the first United Nations Working Group on Indigenous Populations meeting in Geneva in 1982. This year’s theme is “Leaving No One Behind: Indigenous Peoples and the call for a social contract.”
As we celebrate indigenous peoples, Cultural Survival is taking a look back at some of the top 25 wins for Indigenous Peoples over the last 5 years. From historic land back cases to strong Indigenous women in power, there has been great progress to celebrate.
