NATIONAL INDIGENOUS PEOPLES DAY AND INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE WORLD’S INDIGENOUS PEOPLES
THEME: “The Role of Indigenous Women in the Preservation and Transmission of Traditional Knowledge”
“IP WOMEN are the BEDROCK of our country’s CULTURAL HERITAGE”
They hold in their hearts and hands the gift of wisdom and knowledge of history. It is their mission, vocation and journey to preserve and pass on inter generationally the values, skills, and principles learned from our ancestors in order for the present and future generations to continue living with honor and pride while pursuing genuine peace, progress and prosperity.
My salute to all culture bearers and wisdom keepers for your great contribution to human kind.
