Indigenous Peoples Day< Other discussions
Indigenous peoples are inheritors and practitioners of unique cultures and ways of relating to people and the environment. Their conceptualization of health and well-being is generally broader and more holistic, with health frequently viewed as both an individual and a collective right, strongly determined by community, land and the natural environment. Article 24 of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples recognizes the right of indigenous peoples to their traditional medicines, to maintain their health practices and to access social and health services without discrimination. Ayurveda is also an indigenous health tradition.
