Talk:List of indigenous peoples

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
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.

Typo - a apart[edit]

"the state that they are a apart of" s/b "the state that they are a part of" Chris the speller yack 05:49, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

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. Chris the speller yack 15:17, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
OK, Done --Redrose64 (talk) 15:38, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

Remove Israeli Arab conflict tag[edit]

No reason for it to be here. Only a weak connection between the two. It is impractical to tag it as such.Pug6666 02:12, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

Could we get you to read a few section above.Moxy (talk) 02:21, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

Not my point if you need to protect this page do so in a way that isn't a POV push. Pug6666 19:14, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Not sure you understand what the tag means - noting to do with a POV - has to do with editing behavior - specifically about multiple reverts.Moxy (talk) 20:25, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Iranian peoples[edit]

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)

New Zealand, Madagascar, and Iceland[edit]

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 74.97.30.242 (talk) 02:35, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
