NEXT week – specifically on August 9 – the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People will be observed. It’s celebrated each year to “promote and protect the rights of the world’s indigenous population and also recognises the achievements and contributions that indigenous people make to improve world issues such as environmental protection”.
