Mama Earth is inhabited by people of different cultures and gentilities. In the recent era the signs of ethinic and historic ties are being eliminated on a rapid rate due to the adaptation of modern and mainstream political and cultural systems by these groups of people. Mainly, the indigenous people are defined as being indigenous with reference to some particular region or place. The association with some speicific piece of land does not actually mean that the region was originally inhabited by such people, but it is also probable that the descendants of such people might have arrived to such terrritory hundreds or thousands of years ago. Today, although there is much awareness for the recognition of the rights of the indigenous people around the globe, however still they are deprived of their land rights for the aquasition of their valuable resources or on the base of other conflicts.
According to an estimate, there are more than 400 million indigenous people in the world who live in more than 70 countires. After the transformation or colonization of their respective areas into a nation or state, their traditional and cultural values are gradually affected. Many of them are already being wiped out as a result of annihilation, hatred and genocide. The issues related to indigenous people are often highlighted on many forums or media, but still much is needed to address their problems. Following are some exquisite photographs of some indigenous people of the world who belong to different regions.
