The United Nations has declared August 9 as International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples. This site from Cyber School Bus
explains who indigenous people are, where they live, and why their cultures are important to them as well as to those who are not indigenous. Learn about land rights, arts, projects to maintain indigenous languages, and ways you can help honor and sustain the indigenous cultures. In addition, there are resources and activities for teachers to use in the classroom.
