World Indigenous Peoples Day Celebrations 2013, Pahang.

This information was gathered and published by MESYM from this source.

The United Nations has designated August 9 as the World Indigenous Peoples Day. This year the national-level 2013 Word Indigenous Peoples Day Celebrations will be celebrated over a 3-day period in Pahang. Organised by the Indigenous Peoples Network of Malaysia (JOAS), this year’s event will be held in a village-setting.

The Jah Hut community of Kampung Pian in Kuala Krau (between Temerloh and Jerantut) have graciously agreed to be the hosts. Preparations and groundwork have already begun.

So far about 200 Orang Asal participants, including those from Sabah and Sarawak, are confirmed to attend. We expect about 300 to attend, especially from among the Orang Asli of Semenanjung Malaysia.

The event is open to all, and we will try to provide (simple) accomodation and facilities for those wanting to stay the full programme. More details later.
