INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE WORLD’S INDIGENOUS PEOPLES 2019

 

Along with the rest of the international community, Livingstone Foundation International observed the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples 2019 at the Junior High Campus on 14th August 2019. The day was observed in the form of a portrayal of the lifestyle and culture of some of the indigenous people from around the world by beautifully crafting miniature traditional and ethnic houses by the four houses.
The programme began at around 12:30 PM with words of encouragement by the Director of LFI, Mrs. Ani Yepthomi who was the Special Guest on the occasion. This was followed by the significance of the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples by Miss Heulamzaile, Mentor, who presented a brief insight on the importance of the indigenous people around the world.
The four houses represented four indigenous peoples from around the world by making miniature ethnic and traditional houses on the occasion and displaying them at the venue along with the students in ethnic traditional wear. Matthew House represented the Vikings, Mark House the Japanese Ainu, Luke House the Native Americans and John House represented the Egyptians.
The International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples is observed each year to promote and protect the rights of the world’s indigenous population. This event also recognizes the achievements and contributions that indigenous people make to improve world issues such as environmental protection. It was first pronounced by the General Assembly of the United Nations in December 1994, marking the day of the first meeting of the UN Working Group on Indigenous Populations of the Sub-commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights, in 1982.
