International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples - 9 August 2022


International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples is celebrated globally on 9 August.


This year’s theme: “The Role of Indigenous Women in the Preservation and Transmission of Traditional Knowledge”.

Indigenous women are the backbone of indigenous peoples’ communities and play a crucial role in the preservation and transmission of traditional ancestral knowledge.


They have an integral collective and community role as carers of natural resources and keepers of scientific knowledge.


Many indigenous women are also taking the lead in the defence of lands and territories and advocating for indigenous peoples’ collective rights worldwide.
