Indigenous Peoples of the World Listed by Names and Aliases (Ethnonyms)

This listing of the world's indigenous peoples is designed for anyone wishing to view photo-ethnographic essays categorized by names and alias names (ethnonyms). This listing includes multiple entries for the same indigenous people because each ethno-lingustic group is known by different names in different languages, which in turn are transcribed/transliterated differently into English.
