World Tribal Day 2023

World Tribal Day 2023:

The International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, also known as World Tribal Day, is observed annually on August 9, as per a resolution by the UN General Assembly in December 1994.

  • This date commemorates the inaugural meeting of the UN Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights Working Group on Indigenous Populations in 1982, highlighting its significance in promoting and safeguarding the rights of indigenous populations worldwide.
  • The theme of World Tribal Day in 2023 is “Indigenous Youth as Agents of Change for Self-determination.”
  • The day is necessary since indigenous peoples are frequently among the most underprivileged racial and ethnic groupings in society.
  • The UN estimates that although indigenous people make up less than 5% of the global population, they are responsible for 15% of the world’s poorest people.
