GWI honours Indigenous Women with 2022 infographic
International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples is observed on 9 August each year to raise awareness about protecting the rights of the world's Indigenous populations as well as to recognise the achievements and contributions that Indigenous Peoples make to improve world issues such as environmental protection. The day was designated by the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in December 1994, marking the day of the first meeting of the UN Working Group on Indigenous Populations in 1982, now the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous People. GWI shares this infographic to mark this day with an emphasis on the 2022 theme: “The Role of Indigenous Women in the Preservation and Transmission of Traditional Knowledge”.
