INDIGENOUS stems from being born of the land or being produced from the same. Indigenous Peoples means the original inhabitants of the land. When we study Our Story via Anthropology, Genetics, Meteorology, Geology, Metallurgy, and a host of other sciences, we can see that on every inch of this planet, the most ancient peoples are those that migrated out of Africa, millions and millions of years ago.
Indigenous Peoples are those that laid foundation for the Indus/Harrapan, Sumerian, Egyptian, Shang/Xia, Olmec, Aztec, Mayan, Mauritania, Rome, Igbo, Greece, Timbuktu, Habeshat/Ethiopia, Yoruba, Akan, Zulu, Nippon, Kalifia, Berber, Garamantes, and a host of others (feel free to add more in a comment), which still have a presence (in name) in today's world.
The term was originally coined to define people that were marginalized because of foreign forces that occupy land that was not originally theirs. This was done in relation to labor laws and eventually developed for Ancient/Aboriginal Peoples to fight for personal rights and sovereignty upon their own lands. The fight is still ongoing.
I take the term Indigenous Peoples as not only the above but more importantly as: people most anciently connected to land and nation. The original inhabitants are the ones that produced both the conqueror and the conquered. The land of the conqueror is also the property of Indigenous People. DEOZI!
