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).

  Here is something worth being said RIGHT...."To live is to breathe. and to breathe is to pray. to pray is to dance. And then, to dance is to live. "

  I've heard and seen this so many times...and usually so misquoted.

  To the Indian. everything in life is prayer. And as long as you breathe or dance you are doing just that, praying. It is a life long thing to be close to the Creator. If we remember that then we are better able to keep ourselves "clean" of bad medicine.

   Next time you have a bad day, find a quiet spot and take your shoes off. When you touch the mother with your bare feet, you also touch something of Him. You are energized... sit in that field and breathe the clean air close to the ground. Live life as you were intended . Keep simple things like this in mind to uncomplicate your life. Lately ,I have had to do this on a daily basis. So many problems...but they all seem to disappear with the touch of the sun on my face and the joining of my feet on the ground....as we were intended....Peace to you my friends

   In the Spirit of Crazy Horse....have a good day

It takes a lot of love to be gentle--so very true, Aurora. Beautiful meditation--as always. The Native American fairy and the little girl and the fawn are precious--thank you for sharing, L&L, D

Please Help Bring 5 Mamos and 2 translators. Make an investment today. Email: icsawaz@gmail.com

The Mamos (Arhuaco's highly trained ritual priests) feel it is the time to teach and share among different cultures, the spiritual knowledge that leads to a new consciousness. From the wisdom of their oral traditions and records of ancestral memory, they remind us how to live in harmony, contributing to the transformation of the human race. They invite us into a new and conscious way of livinghttp://www.drunvalo.net/

"The Kogi and Arhuacos have been concerned for many years about the actions of "the younger brother" ... those of us living in the technological worlds. Now, with the world in chaos in so many ways, our Elder Brothers, the Kogi and Arhuacos, are calling out to us and an invitation has been sent forth to join them for a three-day gathering in Sedona, Arizona, June 22-24, 2012.

The Kogi and Arhuacos are part of the indigenous peoples living in Colombia's Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. They believe that it is their sacred task to sustain the balance of the spiritual and physical worlds. They are guardians of the Earth and have managed to live in harmony with the planet for thousands of years.

The Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta is the beating heart of the world - Spirit's temple - and is where wealth and sustenance lies. In the Sierra Nevada dwells our spiritual father and mother, the elements of water, wind, fire and earth - that which sustains life on this planet.

We are all connected--let me see the beauty in all things. Seeing mistakes as lessons--so very important. Wonderful pictures. I love seeing the faces of Native Americans. There always seems to be both pride and humility in their expression, a keen intelligence, and a deep love of nature.

The little girl and pup sharing an ice cream cone bring back precious memories, Aurora. I had a friend when I was in grade school, who would share her ice cream cones with her dog.

I hope to watch the video about water in the near future, Aurora, but I'm having a problem with my sound. I have to piddle with it a bit, see what I can do--it was working okay not long ago. yes, I so agree with Lola--everyone should have clean water. We should never take it for granted--it should be appreciated beyond measure. L&L, D

I pray EVERYONE in this world has clean water to drink and bathe and wash their clothes in.  People take it for granted.  Rainbows of Blessings
