Special Issue: International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples

creative-commons John-BoydThe focus of this year’s International Day of the Worlds Indigenous People, 9 August, is "Indigenous media, empowering indigenous voices". The theme aims to highlight the importance of indigenous media in challenging stereotypes, forging indigenous peoples' identities, communicating with the outside world, and influencing the social and political agenda.

A special event at UN Headquarters on 9 August will feature speakers and videos of indigenous media organizations, with a live webcast. At UNRIC, the Nordic Desk has been working on a series of articles on Indigenous Peoples in Northern Europe.
