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).

  It has always been our way to share, to be a part of all of  our surroundings . I think so many have lost sight of what is real...what is good about our home here. We need to remember that Mother earth is a;so a living being. When we tear up a parcel of ground to make way for a new pool or cut down an old stand of trees to build a house or shopping center...We hurt ourselves in many more ways. There are many places we could build. The spaces left by nature. The way the old ones built their villages and homes in the woods.

    Chief Dan George once said the animals do not know us because we do not talk to them and that we do not understand them either...and what we do not understand, we destroy.

     The same holds for the trees and all of the other  creatures here. We all share this world, we are all a part of it. We are no greater then they. We may think differently, we may live in houses instead of trees. But we are all one big community. And we should respect all we are a part of. Thus we will have respect,a well earned one, for ourselves. Wado aya geneli

O, nice pic of the White Buffalo Calf Maiden.  My friend from Pipestone, MN send me a thank you card about a year ago which has a picture of a White Buffalo Calf and the maiden carrying in her arms a peace pipe. Really cool!  Hugs and Smiles with Much Love, Mich

A few years ago, I had a dream where a tree was trying to pull me to it's roots.  I think I understand what the tree was showing me.  For me to return to my family roots and to remember what I came here to do.  To remember oneness and to remember my original family roots, and to remember to help others instead of just myself.  To help others is not easy in my financial circumstance.  But I do what I can in other ways.  Like smiling at others, or giving people hugs, being a good listener, opening doors, etc.  Deeply, I yearn to do more.  So I've been singing a silly little financial song that I had found on youtube.com/.  The words are "I am a magnet to money! I have more than I need. I am a magnet to money!  Money Money loves me."  Had a pretty good rythmn too. Pretty funny words to a song.  So, I sang the song a few times that day and by coincidence Jim and I got more jobs this past week.  Wink!  Much love, Mich

Beautuful Pic about trees.

 

Yesterday I was on a long road for business when I stopped along the farm road to relieve myself. I found a clump of huge old gumtrees and long grass by the side of the road and pulled over. As I was standing there taking in the scene through my body more than my  five senses while "letting go"  I "heard" a huge old gumtree. It's more like it was making its conciousness known to me in a pleasant healing way.

 

It had a pleasant conciousness that is blissful yet maturely calm. It made me feel better lighter and more joyful with a little more gratitude and appreciation of the moment, but it did not have anything in particular to say other than "I am...we are" but I felt a blending in friendship and I felt a little destiny in my choice to stop there at that time. I felt a little more healed (Whole) when I left there. It was a little magical moment that I will remember.

 

Just sharing.

2 more inches of rain--everything under water, guess there will be no digging my potatoes this year--they've rotted.  How is it there Aurora?  Criticism is hard for me to take--had it ALL my life.  Must be a lesson there somewhere!  Thanks for ALL you send us Sweet Aurora.  Rainbows of Love and Blessings, WindStarr
