Remember that the indigenous heritage, culture, or community has been referred to with the umbrella description indigenous identity. Also recall that, although indigenous identity may not fit the UN definitions of indigenous peoples, characteristics of your identity traditions, economic issues, ancestral lands, country of origin, religion, or class may parallel those of indigenous groups. By examining an indigenous identity as an ethnographic study, you have the opportunity to see with an indigenous point of view, connect across cultures, and build a better understanding of the global environment.
