Editors who otherwise violate this 1RR restriction may be blocked without warning by any uninvolved administrator, even on a first offence.
Reports of editors violating any of these restrictions should be made to either the Arbitration enforcement noticeboard. Violations of 1RR should be made to the edit warring noticeboards.
If you are a new editor, or an editor unfamiliar with the situation, please follow the above guidelines. You may also wish to review the arbitration case page. If you are unsure if your edit is appropriate, discuss it here on this talk page first. When in doubt, don't revert!
Q: Why does this list only include "minority" ethnic groups?
A: Because we apply the definition of "indigenous peoples" used by international legislation by UN, UNESCO, ILO and WTO, which applies to 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.
Q: Why does this list not include European ethno-national groups such as Irish, French, Georgian etc. They are also indigenous to their countries.
A: Yes they are indigenous to their countries and territories but they are not indigenous peoples under the definition used by international legislation describe above. The reason this definition is useful is that under a broader definition of "indigenous" it would include all peoples and ethnic groups, because all groups are indigenous to somewhere. The list would then be an exact copy of the list of ethnic groups and would be redundant.

It was added with this edit; but it's in a quote - does the original contain the same error? If it does, we should not "correct" it. --Redrose64 (talk) 12:37, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
Why not correct it? I don't have the printed copy, or access to then full original article, but until one can be found, I think this should be treated as a minor typo that should be fixed to spare our readers the distraction. Per WP:QUOTE, "Exceptions are trivial spelling or typographical errors that obviously do not affect the intended meaning; these may be silently corrected or may be retained and marked with '[sic]'". This is not a historic misspelling like the alternate spelling of "PENSYLVANIA" on the Liberty Bell. Christhe spelleryack 15:17, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
Someone has inserted Kurds and Pashuns and there's no doubt that part of World is their homeland, but 99% other Iranian ethnicities in region can also be called "indigenous" on such basis: Lurs, Laks, Zazas, Mazandaranis, Gilakis, etc. Since all current Iranian peoples are formed on Iranian plateau (except Ossetians), depending by definition they all should be included or excluded. At this moment I excluded both, any opinion against? --HistorNE (talk) 03:55, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
Madagascar and New Zealand are present but Iceland isn't. Seeing as these three islands were all settled at around the same time it would make sense to list the Icelandic people as indigenous. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 02:35, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
