Indigenous religions are the traditions of the native, aboriginal or indigenous peoples of all parts of the world. (The term "indigenous" is current internationally and is used by the United Nations.) Indigenous peoples have diverse cultures and religions but share a long-standing and profound connection to their land, a sense of the kinship of all life, and an intimate relation with ancestors, the spiritual world and the Creator or source of life.
