indigenous peoples day



August 9th was the International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples.

Indigenous peoples are the most disadvantaged people in the world.

Approximately 400 million indigenous people live in 90 countries around the world.

In the shadow of the economic development of each country after World War II
The land where indigenous people live has been destroyed.

They are also vulnerable to the effects of climate change, with poor crop harvests and natural disasters forcing them to leave the land where they have lived with diverse living things.

Indigenous peoples who live far from urban areas are excluded from cultural development and find it difficult to maintain their traditions and communities.

My favorite city is Cusco, where I spent most of my time in Peru.

I can see the Plaza de Armas from my room.
Every day I looked at the sky, the mountains, and the people spending time in the square.

Cusco, the former capital of the Inca Empire, has a rainbow flag erected alongside the Peruvian flag.

A symbol of the Quechua people, an indigenous people who make up nearly half of the population of Bolivia and Peru.
It represents indigenous identity and pride.

The craftsmanship of the Andes region was one of the reasons for starting Nosy Bazaar.

Conveying the handicrafts of indigenous peoples using local materials and traditional techniques
I believe that this will also lead to protecting the land, creatures, and environment that have remained unchanged for thousands of years.

Indigenous environment, traditions, culture, human rights, and poverty.
I want to create opportunities for each person to think while connecting things from hand to hand.
