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).

Let us be willing to sit in a circle and respect our differences--how absolutely beautiful. dear LCF. So simple, yet so profound. If we could all just have an open mind, life itself would be so much simpler. Thank you dear heart, Love and Light, always, Dot

yes, we can observe so much from nature, dear LCf, if we will just take the time to do so. It is good to know to that the unseen world is a happy place. We should all be tought this from the very beginning of our lives. Thank you, dear LCF, and also thank you for the awesone artwork--I love pictures that show both human and animal aspects, as if they are one being--and actually they are--we are all one being. Blessed be, dear heart--Love and Light, always, Dot

We move towards what we think about. Think about what is holy. So simple, yet so pofound. Thank you for the gentle reminder, dear LCF, blessed bem dear heart, Love and Light, always, Dot

Beautiful, serene picture. You can almost breathe in the fresh air--smell the lushness of the greenery, hear the song of the stream, as it flows past, cleansing everything along its way.
