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 have a strong bond or connection to Tecumseh as my guide. I know, it is sad what they did to Tonto :o((( it's ignorance.
Comment by Standing Wolf on September 24, 2011 at 3:09
I live in Indiana so I know a bit about Tecumseh. He wore a turban...true or more or less a hat resembling a turban. It was more of an envelope shaped thing. Wasn't too tight  as a turban is. Don't feel bad. There's a lot of pictures on the net depicting the Cherokee wearing war bonnets too...never happened. Not to menti0on we never lived in tipis either...BUT there are a lot of depictions of them ...even on the reservations...SAD...everything has been Hollywoodized!   Joke on ourselves !!!   LOL

O.K. Standing Wolf, if you could see me now, my face is beet red...lol!!! When I googled for pictures of Tecumseh, this is one of the images I got...go figure!!! So naturally, I thought it was his image. I am aware that Tecumseh never allowed to have his picture taken, so all there is to go by are paintings and sketches done by artists as they see him. I appreciate your teachngs. Thank you and many blessings.

A very good picture of an old Cherokee hunter. Where'd you find it? The turban and the turkey feather give him away.

   Also did you know that the ancient Cherokee actually wore beards and braided them? Most people think that all Indian men had no beards. When the Cherokee did. They used sharpened edges of shells to shave with also. It was believed that keeping the face shaved,at one point, was a religious experience.

We really have a lot to do with what shows up in our lives. You will be treated in the way you treat others.  Every warrior has a song written in his/her heart and a path to the creator.  I am constantly in awe of the profound humility of these wonderful meditations, Aurora--thank you so very much for sharing them, as well as all of the amazing pictures.  This is such a loving, comforting, caring place to be--Blessings to you and yours, Dear Aurora, Love and Light, always, Dot
