Joint Statements

The Ambassador of the United States of America, H.E. Sarah-Ann Lynch, the British High Commissioner, H.E. Jane Miller, the Canadian High Commissioner, H.E. Mark Berman, and the Ambassador of the European Union, H.E. Fernando Ponz-Canto join the people of Guyana in celebrating Amerindian Heritage Month. We celebrate Amerindian communities as an important part of Guyana’s heritage and future. We note that a rich and varied culture is represented in the preservation of land, language, and a way of life. As friends of Guyana, we encourage the participation of Amerindian communities in Guyana’s coming transformation to ensure the social, economic, and environmental well-being of all Guyanese are addressed.
