First Lady urges ‘continued respect for our Indigenous Peoples’ : –as Guyana celebrates ‘Amerindian Heritage Month’


“IT IS that time on our calendar of National Events that we, as a nation, celebrate Amerindian Heritage Month, and I extend heartfelt greetings on behalf of the First Lady’s Foundation and myself to the Indigenous Peoples of Guyana. 

“The many observances during this month will focus on the rich culture and other traditions of our Amerindian People’s, and their positive impact on our cultural mosaic as a whole.
“I urge continued respect for our Indigenous Peoples and for all Guyana to celebrate their achievements while respecting their traditional way of life.
“Happy Amerindian Heritage Month 2014.”
