The Northeast Indigenous People’s Forum (NEIPF)  and Tripura’s People Front ( TPF) along with thousands of people from Tripura and Representatives of  indigenous people from the Northeast region gathered at Khumvulwag Dak Bungalow Stadium in Tripura to observe World’s Indigenous Peoples Day on Friday. 

The   NEIPF and TPF made the following resolutions on the occasion: Firstly, to extend unconditional solidarity to the people of Tripura in their struggle for conserving their language, script, and culture in the face of drastic demographic shift due to immigration from across the border and the resultant threat to their identity and survival.  Consequently, the meeting also urged the Government to fulfil its constitutional obligations under Article 29 of the Constitution in letters and spirit. The second resolution made was to convene a conference of experts and representatives of indigenous people of the Northeast to deliberate on the implications of the abrogation of special status from Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 vis-a-vis the fate of special constitutional status enjoyed by the Northeast. The conference will be convened on September 7 this year at Itanagar and will be hosted by the Arunachal Pradesh chapter of NEIPF in collaboration with NEFA Indigenous Human Rights Organization (NIHRO). The five signatories of the resolutions were: NEIPF chief convenor Anup Chetia,  Arunachal Pradesh NEIPF convenor Tage Lapung, Manipur NEIPF convenor Moirangthem Gunedhor, Nagaland NEIPF convenor, Y Kikon and president of Tripura’s People Front and Tripura convenor of NEIPF, P.K Jamatia.
