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, dear Little Crow Feather--no matter where we've come from or where we are going--on this particular journey we are living on our dear Mother Earth, and we must show respect for her and all she holds dear--Love and Light always, Dot

Hello Standing Wolf,
My dearest friend and brother, you are in my heart and prayers. I wish I had words of encouragement and wisdom for you, but in all honesty, I feel that I am not in a place to advise you, other than to suggest that you do go to your Elders. I do not know you that well, I do not know your lady friend, and I do not know your ex. Again go to your Elders, and listen within to the still small voice of Great Spirit. Your heart will never lie to you.

   I am looking to fog in my future. Maybe you all can help me to see what way I should go.

   I usually get quite well when it comes to getting along with women. In fact my best friend for the last year is a woman. I have known her for 23 years and she has always been there for me. At one time, I think I actually could have married her. But something kept me fro doing that. And I know ,this is not a thing we talk about on here but I am desperate for a good answer.

   My friend once told me that she loved me...but was not in love with me. She'd do anything for me but there was a man whom she did love. And I do love her too...but more as a very special friend...not as a mate. I thought we had basically agreed to keep things that way. We do and did a lot of things together. But I look to her more as an older sister now....Not as a mate.

  Here's the problem...I have an ex wife whom I loved very much. I still do. And now she wants us to try it again. She allowed her family to influence her into leaving me.... But here and now she has realized that ,in her words.I am the bast thing that ever happened to her and that she now realizes how lonely she has been without me. We have been a one long date since then and I am going down to spend 2 days with her over V day.

  The problem is, I think my friend now feels more for me....I don't want to hurt her and she's been there for me. I don't want to lose her as a friend but I really want to give my ex another try. I do still love her... as a wife.

   Can any of you give me any advice. I have no elders to turn to...PLEASE

Oh wow Little Crow Feather, that is an awesome bear picture. I love it. They eyes are just saying so much to me. It's almost as if I'm looking at my Guide. He's called Brown Bear but he's very colourful here lol! So good to have your loving energy back here with us :-)

Welcome back Ian! Great to see you returned and refreshed from your 'journeying'.

I Ditto everything you ALL said!!  LCF, Was you in the Bear Cave?  I sure missed you and getting on this site!  I felt like my whole family was gone.  Welcome Back!  Rainbows of Love and Light

Greetings Little Crow Feather and of our gospel family. It is soo good that we are back together once more. I too have been on a retreat from the outside world and renewing myself and my vision of service to Great Spirit. I have emerged from my cave! And it fills me with appreciation and gratitude to be here with family once more.
Much love and blessings... Ian :)
