Category:Indigenous peoples of Europe

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This category is intended for "indigenous" peoples in the narrow sense, i.e. such peoples as have been marginalized by an immigrant population in recent times. The category is not for European peoples who remain the majority in at least part of their historical homeland, for these, just use Category:Ethnic groups in Europe.

The term indigenous peoples used here has a particular, modern analytical sense. As such, not every ethnic grouping of this region will warrant inclusion here. Reference sources should be cited, particularly if the identification as indigenous may be controversial or contested.

See the discussion on the parent category talk page at Category talk:Indigenous peoples for suggested criteria to be used in determining whether or not any particular group should be placed in this sub-category.
