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).

Nature is full of examples, lessons and exercises about life. So very true--it certainly is--they are right there for us all to see, if we will only look.

May you, dear LCF, and all of the Redman mothers, have a wonderful Mother's Day, rich with abundance and blessings. Blessed be, dear heart, Love and Light, always, Dot

Beautiful artwork--makes me smile.

Have fun at the track meet, Lola, and thank you for the gentle reminder about asking--yes, you are so right--I had forgotten--permission should always be asked to take.

I don't really do anything here but leave comments about how much I enjoy the lovely meditations and artwork that our dear LCF puts up. This is such a wonderful, inspirational post. The meditations sooth and comfort me--they make me feel spiritual. Love and Light, always, Dot

I collect stones and rocks--always ask permission to take!  Thank You LFC and Dot for all you give here.  Off to a track meet for granddaughter.  Rainbows of Love

The Stone People are willing to share their wisdom with us. What a lovely thought, dear LCF. I will listen to them with much gratitude. Blessed be, dear heart, Love and Light, always, Dot

I love the picture of the stones and the leaf--so quiet--so beautiful.
