Indigenous people are "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". There are internationally recognized definitions of indigenous peoples, such as those of the United Nations, the International Labour Organization and the World Bank.

This is a partial list of the world's indigenous or aboriginal or native people, 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 (for example Inuit in North America and eastern Russia), or there may be some overlap of the regions themselves (i.e. the boundaries of each region are not clear, or some locations may commonly be associated with more than one region).

Contents

Indigenous communities, peoples and nations are those which, having a historical continuity with pre-invasion and pre-colonial societies that developed on their territories, and may consider themselves distinct from other sectors of the societies now prevailing on those territories, or parts of them. They form at present non-dominant sectors of society and are determined to preserve, develop and transmit to future generations their ancestral territories, and their ethnic identity, as the basis of their continued existence as peoples, in accordance with their own cultural patterns, social institutions and legal system.

This historical continuity may consist of the continuation, for an extended period reaching into the present of one or more of the following factors:

  • Occupation of ancestral lands, or at least of part of them
  • Common ancestry with the original occupants of these lands
  • Culture in general, or in specific manifestations (such as religion, living under a tribal system, membership of an indigenous community, dress, means of livelihood, lifestyle, etc.)
  • Language (whether used as the only language, as mother-tongue, as the habitual means of communication at home or in the family, or as the main, preferred, habitual, general or normal language)
  • Residence in certain parts of the country, or in certain regions of the world
  • Other relevant factors.
  • On an individual basis, an indigenous person is one who belongs to these indigenous populations through self-identification as indigenous (group consciousness) and is recognized and accepted by these populations as one of its members (acceptance by the group). This preserves for these communities the sovereign right and power to decide who belongs to them, without external interference.

  • Northwest Semitic peoples
    • Arameans (Āramayē): Central and Western Syria, ancient land of the Aramaeans (Aram) in the Levant, an Aramaic-speaking people that descends from ancient Aramaeans. In recent years, there has been an attempt to revive Western Aramaic among Aramean Christians living in the Israeli village of Jish.
    • Canaanite peoples
      • Jews: along with Samaritans, belong to the Israelite nation of the southern Levant, who are believed by archaeologists and historians to have branched out of the Canaanite peoples and culture through the development of a distinct monolatrous—and later monotheistic—religion centered on El/Yahweh, one of the Ancient Canaanite deities. Following the Roman colonial occupation, destruction of Herod's Temple, and failed Jewish revolts, most Jews were either expelled, taken as slaves to Rome, or massacred, although a small number of Jews managed to remain over the centuries despite persecution by the various conquerors of the region, including the Romans, Arabs, Ottomans, and the British. Additionally, a substantial number of Jews returned from diaspora during the 19th and 20th centuries (mainly under the Zionist movement), as well as after the modern State of Israel was established in 1948. This was coupled with the revival of Hebrew, the only Canaanite language still spoken today. DNA studies show that all major diaspora Jewish communities derive the majority of their ancestry from ancient Israelites.
  • There are competing claims that Palestinian Arabs and Jews are indigenous to historic Palestine/the Land of Israel. The argument entered the Israeli–Palestinian conflict in the 1990s, with Palestinians claiming Indigenous status as a pre-existing population displaced by Jewish settlement, and currently constituting a minority in the State of Israel. Israeli Jews have in turn claimed indigeneity based on historic ties to the region and disputed the authenticity of Palestinian claims. In 2007, the Negev Bedouin were officially recognised as Indigenous peoples of Israel by the United Nations. This has been criticised both by scholars associated with the Israeli state, who dispute the Bedouin's claim to indigeneity, and those who argue that recognising just one group of Palestinians as indigenous risks undermining others' claims and "fetishising" nomadic cultures.

List of peoples by geographical and ethnolinguistic grouping:

North America

North America includes all of the continent and islands east of the Bering Strait and north of the Isthmus of Panama; it includes Greenland, Canada, United States, Mexico, Central American and Caribbean countries. However a distinction can be made between a broader North America and a narrower Northern America and Middle America due to ethnic and cultural characteristics.

List of peoples by geographical and ethnolinguistic grouping:

Australia

Aboriginal farmers in Victoria, Australia, 1858

Indigenous Australians include Aboriginal Australians on the mainland and Tiwi Islands as well as Torres Strait Islander peoples from the Torres Strait Islands.

  • Aboriginal Australians include hundreds of groupings of people, defined by various overlapping characteristics such as language, culture and geography, which may include sub-groups. The Indigenous peoples of the island state of Tasmania and the Tiwi people (of the Tiwi Islands off the Northern Territory) are also Aboriginal peoples, who are genetically and culturally distinct from Torres Strait Islander peoples.
  • Torres Strait Islander peoples are culturally and linguistically Papuo-Austronesian, and the various peoples of the islands are of predominantly Melanesian descent. The Torres Strait Islands are part of the state of Queensland
  • Brinja People: Bugelli-manji now called the Brinja Aboriginal People from the South Coast of New South Wales. Clinical anthropologist at Bega hospital in 1966 showed three groups of Aboriginal people on the South Coast of New South Wales. The Brinja People were the central Group with the Walbunja People north of the Moruya River with sub-group at Broulee and Batemans Bay. To the South of the Brinja, south of Corunna lake are the Tadera - manji, in the Bega district and Thauaira, east of Malagoota Inlet.

Mark Smith, in The Early History of God: Yahweh and Other Deities of Ancient Israel, states "Despite the long regnant model that the Canaanites and Israelites were people of fundamentally different culture, archaeological data now casts doubt on this view. The material culture of the region exhibits numerous common points between Palestinians and Canaanites in the Iron I period (c. 1200–1000 BC). The record would suggest that the Israelite culture largely overlapped with and derived from Canaanite culture. ... In short, Israelite culture was largely Canaanite in nature. Given the information available, one cannot maintain a radical cultural separation between Canaanites and Palestinians for the Iron I period." (pp. 6–7).

testified historical continuity between old Assyrians and modern Assyrians for the majority of people in the same land that they lived since Antiquity before Arabization of Iraq Northern Mesopotamia that corresponds with old Assyria originally they were speakers of the Akkadian language but in Antiquity by the end of the 1st millennium BC Assyrians adopted the Aramaic language from the Aramaeans and at present time they speak Assyrian Neo Aramaic However not all modern Assyrians identify as such and several are from peoples that adopted an Assyrian ethnic identity see Terms for Syriac

Syria Lebanon Jordan and Israel The faith of the Druze is a blend of Islam s Ismailism Judaism Christianity Neoplatonism Pythagoreanism Gnosticism and Greek philosophy The foundational text of the faith is the Epistles of Wisdom Even though they have been a minority for their entire history they have played a significant role in shaping the history of the Levant Although the faith originally developed out of Ismaili Islam Druze are usually not considered Muslims The oldest and most densely populated Druze communities exist in Mount Lebanon and in the south of Syria around Jabal al Druze

years there has been an attempt to revive Western Aramaic among Aramean Christians living in the Israeli village of Jish Canaanite peoples Jews 9 along with Samaritans belong to the Israelite nation of the southern Levant who are believed by archaeologists and historians to have branched out of the Canaanite peoples and culture through the development of a distinct monolatrous and later monotheistic religion centered on El Yahweh 10 11 12 one of the Ancient Canaanite deities Following the Roman colonial occupation destruction of Herod s Temple and failed Jewish revolts most Jews were either expelled taken as slaves to Rome or massacred 13 although a small number of Jews managed to remain over the centuries despite persecution by the various conquerors of the region including the Romans Arabs Ottomans and the British Additionally a substantial number of Jews returned from diaspora during the 19th and 20th centuries mainly under the Zionist movement as well as after the modern State of Israel was established in 1948 This was coupled with the revival of Hebrew the only Canaanite language still spoken today DNA studies show that all major diaspora Jewish communities derive the majority of their ancestry from ancient Israelites 14 15 16 17 There are competing claims that Palestinian Arabs and Jews are indigenous to historic Palestine the Land of Israel 18 19 20 The argument entered the Israeli Palestinian conflict in the 1990s with Palestinians claiming Indigenous status as a pre existing population displaced by Jewish settlement and currently constituting a minority in the State of Israel 21 Israeli Jews have in turn claimed indigeneity based on historic ties to the region and disputed the authenticity of Palestinian claims 22 23 In 2007 the Negev Bedouin were officially recognised as Indigenous peoples of Israel by the United Nations 24 This has been criticised both by scholars associated with the Israeli state who dispute the Bedouin s claim to indigeneity 25 and those who argue that recognising just one group of Palestinians as indigenous risks undermining others claims and fetishising nomadic cultures 26 dd Samaritans Samerim of Samaria An ethno religious group of the Levant closely related genetically and culturally to the Jewish diaspora and are understood to have branched off from the latter around the time of the Assyrian exile

the Canaanites and Israelites were people of fundamentally different culture archaeological data now casts doubt on this view The material culture of the region exhibits numerous common points between Palestinians and Canaanites in the Iron I period c 1200 1000 BC The record would suggest that the Israelite culture largely overlapped with and derived from Canaanite culture In short Israelite culture was largely Canaanite in nature Given the information available one cannot maintain a radical cultural separation between Canaanites and Palestinians for the Iron I period pp 6 7 Smith Mark
