: Guyana celebrates its Amerindian Heritage Day! This day is dedicated to honor Guyana’s indigenous people and remembers the day on which the first Guyanese Amerindian, Stephen Campbell, became a member of the Parliament.
As a consequence of this day, the month of September was designated as Amerindian Heritage Month with its main celebrations taking place on the 10th. Another interesting fact about this celebration is that one city in the country is designated annually as “Heritage Village.” As for 2012 the elected village is Micobie. This gives the possibility to the selected community to share their traditions, culture, customs, food and achievements with the rest of the country.
Guyana is an eco-friendly country. Its well-preserved Amerindian communities and its countless rivers and falls make it one of the few natural countries in the world still to be explored. Some of the most beautiful places to visit are the Tumatumari Falls, Orinduik Falls and Kaieteur Falls. In addition take a boat trip on any of Guyana’s large rivers and visit an Amerindian community. If you enjoy adventure, this is definitely a country worth to visit and explore!
