Guyana: Amerindian Heritage Month

September every year has been designated as Amerindian Heritage Month in recognition of the sacrifices and contributions of Guyana’s first inhabitants, the Amerindians. Similar observances are held in other countries to honour the contributions of their Native or Indigenous peoples.
