Amerindian Heritage Month has its beginnings in Amerindian commemorations of 10 September 1957 – the day on which Stephen Campbell became Guyana’s first Amerindian Member of Parliament. On September 10, 1995, Guyana’s Prime Minister, Cheddi Jagan, officially designated September as Amerindian Heritage Month and September 10 every year is observed as Heritage Day. Throughout the country, Amerindian villages hold village celebrations to pay tribute to their culture and in recognition of achievements made by Amerindians from their village and countrywide.
