International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples

9th August 2021 

Western Sydney University is commemorating the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples on the 9th of August to celebrate the protection of the rights of the world’s Indigenous population. The date marks the inaugural session of the Working Group on Indigenous Populations at the United Nations in 1982. 

This Guide has been developed to provide resources and information in response to this year’s theme of ‘Leaving no one behind: Indigenous peoples and the call for a new social contract’.

Included in this guide are publications authored by Western’s Indigenous scholars across 2020-2021, videos and streaming media, and links to other key resources which outline the context of the annual celebration and assist in promoting discussion.
