Indigenous Peoples of the World – on Stamps!
Thursday, October 22, 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. (EDT)
There are more than 600 indigenous groups of people, the descendants of those who first inhabited many previously uninhabited areas of the globe hundreds or even thousands of years ago. These original peoples and their civilizations were often overprinted by European colonists, and their cultural traditions often have faded over the years. In 2007, the United Nations passed the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, intended to encourage member nations to protect those people and their cultural traditions. Stamps issued by countries with indigenous populations sometimes show those people and their remnant cultures. Explore the history of stamps depicting indigenous peoples world-wide.
Tom Broadhead is 2nd Vice President of ATA and has been an avid stamp collector for more than 60 years. Although Tom’s primary collecting interest is the 20th century postal history of France, he is an ardent champion of the study of images on stamps and how they reflect the history and culture of their issuing nations. A professor of geology at The University of Tennessee, Tom enjoys occasionally teaching a seminar on the culture of stamps for honors students and giving lectures on stamp topics in the honors lecture series. He is active in the Knoxville Philatelic Society, where he has been newsletter editor for 15 years. http://knoxstamps.com. You can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
