Me thinks indigenous is a verb.
Maybe so, maybe not.
I like this part of the definition.[occurring naturally in a particular place]

I am a traveler so I am not indigenous.But I blend in and can aid a place to occur natural.
I am however indigenous to a Living Mother Earth and Living Father Sky who I Love and am cared for.

I can respect this video.
Just because I believe it today, doesn't mean I will believe it tomorrow.

I go back to what I’ve said before:
In a tribal setting one has a collective identity. Individuality is very much celebrated, but only in the context of it belonging to the totality of the tribe.
Within that belonging to totality - is unconditional inclusiveness.
In my experience, if one integrates, marries into a tribe i.e. becomes a functional part of that collective whole, then one’s yellowness, whiteness, redness – whatever is accepted and respected and also celebrated as a unique part of that tribal inclusive whole.

Just because my late partner was Aboriginal and I integrated and assimilated into the group and felt “One Spirit” with it – that didn’t/doesn’t mean that when I listen to or ‘channel’ my ‘ancestral spirits’, they are going to be Aboriginal.

Everybody already - equally has a spiritual side.
