Indigenous Peoples Around the World

Indigenous Peoples Around the World

There are more than 370 million Indigenous Peoples, living around the world in 90 countries, who have unique rights, cultures and connections to the land.

Ten of Teck’s 12 operations in Canada, Chile and the United States and the majority of our exploration and development projects are located within or adjacent to Indigenous Peoples’ territories.

In addition to the United Nations declaration of the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples on August 9, there are a number of annual days of recognition and celebration of regional Indigenous Peoples that Teck would like to acknowledge:

Australia: National Reconciliation Week, May 27 – June 3

Canada: National Indigenous Peoples Day, June 21

Chile: National Day of World Indigenous People, June 24, and International Day of Indigenous Women, September 5 

Alaska: Indigenous Peoples Day, October 8 

USA: Native American Heritage Day, November 23
