The United Nations’ (UN) International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples is observed on August 9 each year to promote and protect the rights of the World’s Indigenous Peoples.
"The Prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor", the interpretation foretells of the sharing of Indigenous knowledge with technologies of science, cultural beliefs and philosophies, and the bridging of Indigenous Peoples of the Americas. The most powerful is the message it offers about consciousness to higher levels of awareness, as human beings we can awaken and evolve into a more conscious species.
Indigenous Peoples make up just 5 percent of the world’s population — about 400 million people — yet also account for nearly 15 percent of the world’s extreme poor, and occupy some 22 percent of the Earth’s land surface.
