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).

"Everything as it moves,

now and then, here and there,

makes stops.

The bird as it flies stops in one place to make its nest,

and in another to rest in its flight.

A man when hegoes forth stops when he wills.

So the god has stopped.

The sun, which is so bright and beautiful,

is one place where he has stopped.

The moon, the stars, the winds, he has been with.

The trees, the animals, are all where he has stopped,

and the Indian thinks of these places and sends prayers there

to reach the place where the god has stopped

and win help and a blessing. "

-Anonymous Dakota Sioux wise man circa 1890

Just for you, Gun-Britt, a Cherokee Rose.

Cherokee Prayer
Oh Great Spirit
Father of my ancestors
Grant us the wisdom
Of the ages

Teach us to walk lightly
Upon our mother earth
Guide our footsteps
Through the paths of life

Help us to see
With eyes of the eagle
That man is not judged
By the color of his skin
But by the goodness
Of his own heart

Give us tolerence
For the white man
Who burns our villages
And rapes our land
He who takes without asking
Until all is dead and barren

Let us not fall
Into the depth of ignorance
Where the mindless dwell
Forever lost in darkness

Send us the wind
To cool our brow
And the rain
To quench our thirst

Provide us with food
When we are hungry
And shelter
When the storms blow

Look kindly upon our people
For generations to come
Until we rest peacefully
With our ancestors
