Protect, Promote Endangered Languages, Secretary-general Urges in Message for International Day of World’s Indigenous People

Following is the text of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People, to be observed on 9 August:

In 1994, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 9 August the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People. There were many reasons for this decision, but the fundamental motivation was the Assembly’s recognition of the need to place the United Nations clearly and strongly behind the promotion and protection of the rights of indigenous peoples, in order to put an end to their marginalization, their extreme poverty, the expropriation of their traditional lands and the other grave human rights abuses they have faced and continue to encounter. Indeed, the suffering of indigenous peoples includes some of the darkest episodes in human history.
