World Indigenous Peoples' Day, also known as International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples, is observed on August 9th each year. It aims to recognize and celebrate the cultures, contributions, and struggles of indigenous peoples around the world. The day also seeks to raise awareness about the issues indigenous communities face, such as cultural preservation, land rights, and social discrimination. The United Nations General Assembly first proclaimed the day in 1994, and it has since been marked with events, discussions, and educational programs globally.
