5 September - International Indigenous Women's Day
International Indigenous Women's Day is a commemoration instituted in 1983 during the Second Meeting of Organizations and Movements of the Americas to focus attention on indigenous women, their history, situation and perspectives.
The date was designated as a tribute to Bartolina Sisa, an indigenous Aymara woman leader who was assassinated on September 5, 1782 after leading an indigenous uprising against the Spanish crown. The uprising led to the establishment of a siege on the city of La Paz in 1781.
During this date, social organizations, international organizations and authorities will demonstrate emphasizing the current living conditions of indigenous women, as well as enhancing information about their contribution to society in all areas in the present and throughout history.
