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).

Gee Lola, I never gave that any thought, but it is certainly possible...even probable. So, let us sing and dance together as one and be ready for this ride.

Good morning everyone! Alittle cooler today~~TYG! I feel this is man-made from haarp. Does anyone else get that? Get ready for a ride. I'd rather be singing and dancing too. Rainbows of Love

Yes my sisters, let us pray for the people in places where there is fires and floods and no power. Russia is also experiencing terrible flooding.

My goodness, since I arrived in Sweden, the temps have been in the low to upper 60s, with rain just about every day. The Swede's are saying this is a bad summer, they don't remember when it was so bad. July is the time for holiday, therefore, camping and swimming is not good, if you stay within the country. Grey skies....grey skies!!! Dot, I look forward to Autumn also, it's my favorite season. I will be in Florida (which I know has been getting lots of rain...reports of flooding in places) end of Sept. Which means in October, I will go to Octoberfest. German food, German beer, um-pah-pah music, dancing....I love it!!!

We're having a heat wave, here too, Lola (West Chester PA) It's supposed to be 100 today (Sat) Many people here are without electricity, too--as you say, God be wih them--I pray they get their power restored soon. Also enormous trees down from storms--some hit houses, cars--very scary. I'm looking forward to Autumn. L&L, D

The Spirit Of Narive American Women is awesome, LCF--beautiful images, and oh, the sounds--how I love the drums. At the end, the Ha-yaaa, Ha-yaaa is like the sound I hear in my head, except that mine is Hi-yaaa, Hi-yaaa--comforting sounds--the sounds of my people. Even though I am of of German/Irish/English/possibly French decent, my heart and soul dwell in the native American heritage I feel that I lived in the "past" L&L, D

Let your life speak for you.

The truth shall set you free.

Silence is the way of the warrior.

We are as sick as our secrets.

Such wonderful wisdom in these beautiful meditations, dear LCF, thank you so much for sharing them, they touch my soul, Love and Light, always, Dot
