August 9th is a great opportunity to celebrate the more than 370 million indigenous men, women and children worldwide. UNESCO’s Education Sector fights against the plight of indigenous people through the promotion of rights and values in Education and, via a developmental approach to learning needs, within the realm of inclusive Education.

This is a very important day! I plan on having a post on it as Indigenous Issues Today but glad to see it here as well. The more voices the better!
