Indigenous People

Watch the video "The Word Indigenous - explained" by CBC Kids News. The word Indigenous has more than one meaning.

In this lesson, we use the word Indigenous or Indigenous People to mean the original peoples of North America and their descendants. You may also see the term Native American used in the same way. The word Indigenous is a more inclusive word that can include groups of people from all over the world.
