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).

Thank you for the wise words of Chief Seattle, Schay. They are so very poignant--so very true.

Lola, enjoy your snow. I'm anxious to see if it really will total 6 inches.

Beautiful pictures, LCF--The spider holding the world in it's web--Awesome. And the Indian chief with his stern expression. I think, perhaps the person beside him is his wife--not sure because of the short cropped hair. But they are certainly a magestic couple.

In honor of Chief Seattle and Happy Earth Day, today and always.

Each person has a special talent, a special gift--what is your special medicine? So true, LCF. I think the beauty of these meditations is that they remind us that we are all unique, yet we are all one--and each one of us affects the whole. Thank you precious sister--Blessed be, dear heart--Love and Light, always, Dot

Love the little clapping, happy face. So cute.
