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).

They are awesome to see, specially when you get to dance with them.  My garden was flooded again yesterday.  This has got to STOP!  Clear now TYG!  Rainbows of Love

These ceremonies must be truly awesome to watch. I've never seen one, there aren't any (that I know of) close by, and it's difficult for me to travel very far, but I'm going to see if I can get some videos of them. I know I would enjoy them immensely. Blessed be, dear heart, and thank you for all these wonderful meditations and pictures, they are much appreciated, Love and Light, always, Dot

The secret for us is to learn by observing nature--so very true, dear LCF, thank you for the gentle reminder, Love and Light, always, Dot.

I love the dancers, they are so colorful--such beauty. I also love the picture of the landscape--gorgeous.

When we sing and touch the Great Spirit's hand, he gives us power. Songs are another way to pray. How lovely, dear LCF, thank you for sharing these beautiful words with us. Blessed be, Love and Light, always, Dot

The little girl singing is so precious, I just want to give her a big hug.

I love this meditation about how medicine people live the life of humility and service, and must never stop learning. What a beautiful soul this man must have.

The picture is so gorgeous--I've always been fascinated with buffalo--thank you for sharing it--blessed be, dear heart, Love and Light, always, Dot
