THE spotlight will be on Guyana’s Indigenous people, the Amerindians, throughout next month, designated Amerindian Heritage Month. The Ministry of Amerindian Affairs has planned a series of activities to celebrate this month.
An interfaith service at the Umana Yana on August 31, starting at 17:00hrs, will raise the curtain on the activities. The activities will be observed under the theme, Our culture our heritage our life: a fusion of Indigenous Diversity.
The grand launch of Amerindian Heritage Month will be on September 1 at the Amerindian Village, Sophia, beginning at 17:30hrs, where an exhibition showcasing food and craft made by the Amerindians will also be held. The exhibition runs until September 5.
Then there will be a Heritage Walk on September 4, starting at the Umana Yana.
An exhibition and reflection on the life of Stephen Campbell, the first Amerindian Parliamentarian, will also be held at the Umana Yana, Kingston, on September 8.

There will be a Miss Amerindian Heritage Pageant at the National Cultural Centre, on September 17, and a Sports and Family Fun Day on September 17 and 18.
