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).

Beloved AuroRa / Little Crow Feather,

Oh, how wonderful to see your beautiful smile!  This saying reminds me of a talking stick I received decades ago as a gift from a rare and lovely American Indian Art Gallery in Santa Barbara.  They also sold some of the artwork that was made from artisans all over the country.  This talking stick is so special because the holder of the talking stick is the only one allowed to talk in the circle and then when they are finished, they pass it along to the next person who wishes to speak and they don't finish until each person has had a chance to speak.  It not only involves speaking but really listening and a tremendous amount of knowledge could be gained by just being a participant in these circles.  The Gallery was owned by a woman who's sister was Paula Gunn Allan.  They were a creative family.  The circle coincided with the Circle of life.
