A TRIBUTE TO OUR INDIGENOUS FAMILY

List of indigenous peoples

This is a partial list of the world's indigenous / aboriginal / native peoplesIndigenous peoples are any ethnic group of peoples who are considered to fall under one of the internationally recognized definitions of Indigenous peoples, such as United Nations, the International Labour Organization and the World Bank, i.e. "those ethnic groups that were indigenous to a territory prior to being incorporated into a national state, and who are politically and culturally separate from the majority ethnic identity of the state that they are a part of".

Note that this is a listing of peoples, groups and communities. Many of the names are externally imposed, and are not those the people identify within their cultures. As John Trudell observed, "They change our name and treat us the same." Basic to the unethical treatment of indigenous peoples is an insistence that the original inhabitants of the land are not permitted to name themselves. Many tribal groups have reasserted their traditional self-identifying names in recent times, in a process of geographical renaming where "The place-name changes herald a new era, in which Aboriginal people have increasing control over the right to name and govern their homelands."

This list is grouped by region, and sub-region. Note that a particular group may warrant listing under more than one region, either because the group is distributed in more than one region (example: Inuit in North America and eastern Russia), or there may be some overlap of the regions themselves (that is, the boundaries of each region are not always clear and some locations may commonly be associated with more than one region).

  I am sorry to miss out but happy birthday Lola. Been busy with our local council.I am to speak at the all faiths assembly on the first about Cherokee beliefs here at ISU. Also I am now engaged .....yes same woman. I start a new job this week sometime and looking for a new house to move into and get settled prior to our wedding this fall. YES I have been VERY busy! The father has smiled on me and I feel quite blessed. The wedding ceremony will be a traditional Cherokee one. Our council leader is going to marry us and I think the council is going to help with the wedding activities as well. When we get closer, I will post all of the info on here so that if you would like to come and can,,, you will all be welcome.

   It took a long time for me to accept me as myself. I could not be sure if what I was was good enough.... But as with all of nature, if you do not accept it, it will turn against you. You have to believe you were made to be as you are. That is the key point. You cannot change who you are or what nature is. Because we are all a part of it. Learn to be happy with yourself and you will find much peace in this world. We are not perfect... we were NOT meant to be....in the Spirit of Crazy Horse... peace to you

This reminds me of the man who was dying of cancer.

His wife bought him a bicycle and bought it to his hospital bed. She knew what his dream was.All he did all day was to watch comedy on the tv and have belly laughs all day anticipating how he would enjoy cycling with that bicycle..

Later in his life he did the Le Mans bicycle race in France and won it.

Happy Birthday, again, Lola--although I'm a day late. I remember you saying a couple of weeks or so ago that it was actually the 17th, but had been listed wrong in the birthday column. Hope you had fun with the kids and grands--Love and Light, always, Dot
