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).

We must obey the natural laws that govern the earth--so very true, dear LCF--thank you for the gentle reminder.

I love the picture of the beautiful man with all the beautiful animals. It speaks volumes. Blessed be, dear heart, Love and Light, always, Dot

Sometimes I think I'm turning into my mother.  She was so wise~~ it does take some along time to get what they say.  Getting the much needed rain. THG!!  Rainbows of Love and Blessings

The old ones understand--listen very carefully when they speak. How very beautiful, dear LCF, how very true. We can learn so much from our elders. I love the picture of the grandmother weaving stories as the little ones listen with rapt attention. Thank you dear heart, for these poignant meditations and remarkable pictures, they remind us of the things to focus on to keep our hearts and minds in the right place. Blessed be, Love and Light, always, Dot

Oh, yes, LCF--we must be grateful for the power. I try to live in a spirit of gratitude--I am so grateful for all my blessings. I literally feel blessed to be blessed. Blessed be, dear heart, Love and Light, always, Dot

Yes Dot, not only use the power wisely, but be grateful for it also. (((Hugs)))

Comment by Dorothy Peer Promiscuo on May 30, 2012 at 15:55

Power comes from the Creator. During the time we have this power, we should be responsible and use it in a good way. Thank you for the gentle reminder, dear LCF--and thank you for the precious picture. I love pictures of gentle people holding gentle animals or birds, and seeing the obvious love between them. Blessed be, dear heart, Love and Light, always Dot
