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 totally agree, Dear LCF--the strength and innocence together speaks volumes of humility, and it also speaks balance. Love and Light, always, Dot

I love the picture. Doesn't the strength and innocence together speak volumes of humility? To me, not only does it speak humility, it also speaks balance :o)))

Beautiful lion and lamb--strength and innocence together.

Being humble is saying the truth and giving credit where credit is due--so very true, dear LCF--thank you for the gentle reminder. Love and Light, always, Dot

I meant to say, in my last reply, that the children are so adorable--I just want to give each one of them a big hug. Thank you for sharing this precious piccture, dear LCF, Love and Light always, Dot
