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).

A short overview of the feature film project, Cherokee Word for Water ,currently in development. The film tells the inspiring true story of a tribal community in Oklahoma that overcame the odds and joined together to build a waterline and so much more. It includes comments by Wilma Mankiller, former principal chief of the Cherokee Nation. For more info: cw4w2008@gmail.com

Let me focus on what needs to be done today--so very true, Aurora--sometimes I tend to get ahead of myself, wanting things to go faster than I can get them done, Thank you for the gentle reminder, dear heart, Love and Light, always, Dot

The picture of the bison licking the little bird is awesome--so precious--thanks for sharing. Love and Light, always, Dot

Yes, Aurora--we will get back whatever we plant--so very true--thank you for the gentle reminder dear heart, L&L, D

Laughed at the joke--nag, nag, nag, so cute. Love the pictures of the beautiful Indian maidens releasing birds (on previous pages as the one below) To me they signify freedom, and embracing all that is. Also love the wolves and the crow.
