Abstract or Introduction

This essay shows that indigenous people are not recognised enough and suffer from neo-colonial measures. It will pick up Merlan’s (2009) applied definition of Rowse for "recognition": It is the organized representation of population, land, and customary law. Not all indigenous peoples are marginalized, though, and progress in terms of recognition has been made. The ontogenesis of indigenous movements was favoured by the establishment of legal acts in the wake of minority rights after the Second World War, and since then there is an overall bias towards improvement.
