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).

Thank you my family. Very hard to be here now. I am on bike. But I can't stand to be alone at home. A nice tent in a woods would help me a great deal. To take off my shoes and connect with the mother and again be a part of her. Feel her energy as it heals my heart.

  I am planning to go on a long trip to meditate. I need a vision quest to retry myself. To become who I really am again and not who I am now. Healing is a process....I will have to learn to love myself again..this is the only way ..In the Spirit of Crazy Horse...have a good day

Thank you so much for the beautiful meditations, Aurora, they have such power, such love, such humility. I love hearing about our dear Mother Earth, and the Great Spirit, and how we relate to them, how they relate to us. These meditations calm my soul and the spectacular pictures enliven my spirit, Blessed be dear heart, Love and Light, always, Dot

Dear Standing Wolf, my heart goes out to you. Yes, sometimes we are tested to our very limits and beyond. As to your dear son, I've just recently been hearing about a new medicine (in pill form, I believe) that is helping to either cure AIDS, or put it in remission. Perhaps you can look into this. Yes, being lonely can be so very difficult, but I do believe there is someone very special for you, and you will find her in the near future. Call to her in your dreams, tell you are waiting for her, and she will appear. Blessed be, dear heart, Love and Light, always, Dot

Comment by Standing Wolf on July 16, 2012 at 3:58

Good morning family. I am here for a short time as I have no internet at home now. Hopefully soon my disability will kick in and I will be able to at least half live again.

  Again, life has tested me in very hard ways,2 times now.

  My one son has tested positive for HIV....Not asking him how...just worried about him and my grand children.

  The next, even more personal is that Anita, my wife to have been, informed me the other day that she was leaving me and going to move in with her Ex...

   Both VERY hard pills to swallow. I am very hurt and confused right now. So I won't stay on here long.

   I've known tears but lately, I've had more then my own share.

   I went to a Sun Dance and healing ceremony with a friend from one of the councils I am a member of. It did relieve some of my pain.....until I was alone again. Loneliness without anyone to talk to is a hard thing. I prayed, smoked and asked for guidance. But Somethings have to be allowed healing time. It hurts, especially when a marriage is just 2 weeks away and the one you have put first in your life has betrayed you. I ask for your prayers again. Maybe someone out there is waiting for me to find them. I know I'm not supposed to be alone. I have been told that I am to die and leave a living wife to morn my passing. I feel a void in my life knowing this.

   Once Crazy Horse was as I am now. He found another love....If it is to be...it is. I will continue to keep my eyes and ears open for her....it is the way of things

    In the name of Crazy Horse...I am alive and I know my path...Have a beautiful day my friends
