Indigenous PeoplesUnited Nations

Indigenous communities, peoples, and nations are defined by the United Nations as "those which, having a historical continuity with pre-invasion and pre-colonial societies that developed on their territories, considered themselves distinct from other sectors of the societies now prevailing in 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 systems.”

Indigeneity: An Alternative Worldview
  • Change is constant, as new energy enters the world. We must hold on to our ‘core values’ as we entertain and create new ideas.
  • Indigenous people see everything through the filter of community.
  • There is a spiritual interconnectedness between all elements of creation; all have a right to exist; and, all have an obligation to contribute to the whole.
  • We seek a harmonic balance between the elements of creation, rather than domination, exclusion, or exploitation.
  • Each person has different powers and strengths, but all have value. Each person has an obligation to contribute her or his value to the community.
  • Justice is the achievement of balance in all relationships, and the demonstration of respect for the dignity of each element in the circle of interdependency that forms the universe.
  • In Indigenous governance, ‘personal autonomy’ has precedence over ‘collective sovereignty’. There should be no coercion, only the compelling force of conscience based on the 4 R’s.
  • All worldviews must be valued, including those of the enemy.
