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).

  I think that we see God in a different light. And I believe that the God we seek is the same as all others do as well. As you said in the past different roads to the same God...different religions... The ones who have texts...they are written by men , and men are flawed. They tend to slant what The Creator has to say with what man has to say...Most are of an ethnic nature, such as the Jewish people or the Arab people...which choose their own people as the "chosen" of God. But did the same God not create us all? He spoke to us all in different voices but always pointed us in the same direction. We, as Native peoples, have a tendency to look around us and see and listen to our surroundings. The voice of God can be herd there at all times. I don't believe that the only place to pray to God is a church...His whole creation is our church. Some places are holier then others. But the earth is a church unto Him who created us...

   To be honest, I have a problem with God picking only one person out to give his word and laws down and  through.  He did not make one over the other....He made us all the same, His children. I was brought up as a Baptist...but even though I have I still believe in Him... I have doubts about other aspects of the religion.

   I do know that when Constantine was emperor, he had 2 sides to him. He professed to be Christian but worshipped the Sun God in the chapel he built for him in the basement of his first Church he built for Christendom . And that he and a group of priests, basically re-wrote the entire New testament ....If there ever is allowed to be a true translation of the Bible from the dead sea scrolls...you will see a great deal of differences. I have done much research into other faiths and beliefs and found most of them (as far as their texts go) are just as corrupted. As I said "written by man". I feel the only true beliefs...NOT religions are what God made for us to find. And He left everything right here for us to discover on our own.

   I believe that one day, all diseases will find a cure in nature. Since everything has to balance...it is only logical that we will. After all He made us and the world we live in... and that is all part of His balancing system. Everything on this earth has it's balance. It's opposite and it's equal...That's why we have to take care of the mother. She can help us to learn and to grow...or completely destroy us and start over....Have a good day my friends...In the Spirit of Crazy Horse....

My heart is filled with so much love for the Ancestors . I just look at the picture of Lame Deer offering the pipe, and I get all choked up. What is truly sad to me, is that the ignorance of some of the religious white man is still happening today. It hits me right in my own family. My parents and children, to be exact. When I was awakened to my NA history, I quickly shared it with them. At first there was no controversy, but now, they think that I am playing with demonic forces, not walking with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Yes, my ego is crushed, my heart is deeply hurt. I have given them gifts, made by the precious hands of Native Americans, only to now discover that they threw them out in the trash. I am realizing that my place is with my NA family. I am thinking about their love, their harmony, their peace, their joy, their way of life, and it brings me to tears. It is time to use my name. I pray that someday I do recieve my Crow feather, and my secret desire, although it's not a secret now, is it?...lol!!! I would love to have a beautiful Medicine Man/Holy Man in my life. It has been in my hearts prayer for many, many months. Thank you so much my family for letting me dump on you. You are all so very precious to me.

Little Crow Feather
