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 can certainly appreciate all you're going through, Lola. I sure hope you can get some time to try and relax a little. These sad situations drain us mentally, physically, and emotionally--they pretty much knock us for a loop. I know it's difficult at a time like this, but please try to keep up your strength--it's important. Love and Light, always, Dot

My heart goes out to you, Lola--I know how drained you must feel, and as you say--there's still lots to do. I'm sending you prayers and positive energy to help you cope with it all--Love and Light, always, Dot

You move toward and become like that which you think about. We should think about our visions to make sure they include the Great Spirit in every area. So very true, dear LCF. Thank you for the gentle reminder--Love and Light, always, Dot
