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).

Yes, we must return to the spiritual work. Beautiful meditation, as always, dear Aurora, thank you. I plan on watching the video you posted--it looks so interesting, but I'm still having trouble with my headphones--or more likely, it's the speakers. I need to get a new sound system soon, so I can watch and listen to these wonderful videos. Thank you so much for all you do, dear heart, it is much appreciated, Love and Light, always, Dot

I love reading your poetic words, dear Standing Wolf, thank you for sharing your most intermost thoughts. Yes, everything in life is a prayer, and I believe that gratitude is a large part of that prayer. Love and Light, always, Dot

  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
