    Default Indigenous?

    What is an Indigenous Person?

    Are you one?

    You see, when I went to school I was taught that there were only two races in the World who were Indigenous, and they were the American Red Indian and the Australian Aborigine.

    Now everybody seems to claim they are Indigenous, especially if there is a handout involved.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    Well its worse in Jew occupied Palestine. Jew immigrants from US and Europe etc think they have more rights to settle in Jew militarily occupied Palestine over the Palestinians who have been there hundreds of years.
    Apparently these immigrants thinks its their home now even after their descendants left over 2000 years ago.
    Its amazing how Potatoes give us chips,fries and Vodka.

    Get your s*** together every other vegetable.

    Well Prefect, that puts an interesting twist on things.

    I never thought of this thread taking us back 3000+ years.

    As I understand it, the Israelites claim it as theirs, but the Palestinians claim it as “Proceeds of War” and that argument will be going on well after the effects of Climate Change.

    I personally don’t think either of the buggers were indigenous.

    The Israel/Palestine 'thing' is interesting though.

    I've tried to get my head around it, but it's like understanding women.

    Almost impossible to find an impartial view too.

    I guess it depends on how you define it https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...ples#Polynesia
    I don't recall ever being taught there were only the two, certainly can't find anything to support it now.

    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"

    Not many left really. Perhaps that tribe in Finland? Politically separate...

    I wonder who you refer to as "everybody"? The only ones I can think of who claim to be indigenous is the maoris and they are never too far away if there is a few million to be had.

    But I can't understand how they can claim to be indigenous when they will tell you that they migrated from Hawaiki. Everybody knows that story.
