I have always understood the definition of indigenous to mean native to. So saying indigenous people means nothing if you don't say where they are indigenous to. It does not mean they are tribal. It does not mean they are primitive. It does not even mean they are from somewhere else. It just means they are native to someplace. They could be native to sweden and have the best quality of life in the world and all of the modern amenities.
This really started to get me frustrated and came to symbolize all of the ignorance of the middle class the more james-paul said it. So i decided that i was going to rant about it and should probably make sure that i was correct about the word before i said anything about it. So i looked at two different online dictionaries and i was right. In conclusion, james-paul is an idiot and so is everyone else like him. Beware of committing my newest pet peeve or i will deem you an idiot as well.
