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).

How dull our lives would be without our beautiful trees and flowers.  I'm Thankful for them everyday.  My computer wouldn't let me write anything yesterday~~anyone else have that problem?  Dot some of our family settled in PA.  We live in OH now.  Wouldn't want to live without the beauty around us.  Makes all the crap bearable.  Rainbows of Love

The dogwood is my favorite tree. I had a beautiful baby planted in my front yard when I lived in Rhode Island, it was a Mother's Day gift. I do miss the tree. Unfortunately, there are no dogwoods in Florida or Sweden, so I enjoy them in pictures...LOL!!! By the way Dot, the meaning of the dogwood flower is 'endurance'.
XOXOXO

Say your prayers and don't worry about them. When I am right with the Creator, nothing can touch me. Suffering is only letting go of things that don't work anymore. We need to focus on the spiritual. If we want to change ourselves, we need to change our self talk. Such beautiful, humble meditations, dear Aurora--thank you so very much--they are so very comforting, L&L, D

The artwork is awesome. The warriors combined with animals or birds, are magnificent. The dogwood blossom brings back precious memories--we used to have dogwood trees at our first house in PA where we lived for over thirty years--not far from where I live, now. they are so lovely when they're in bloom--both pink and white--and even when they're not in bloom.

Wow,such neat pictures!  We are going through ALOT of changes!  Since we were young and the way our grandchildren have it~~hard to get use to some things.  At least their morals are still good!  Rainbows of Love
