1. Definition of Indigenous people

The United Nations Organisation (UNO) has no exact definition of Indigenous people. On 9 to 20 May 2016, the Fifteenth Session of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII) affirmed that indigenous people (also termed aboriginal people, native people, or autochthonous people) are distinctive groups protected in international or national legislation as having a set of specific rights based on their linguistic and historical ties to a particular territory, prior to later settlement, development, and or occupation of a region. (https://www.un.org/development/ desa/indigenouspeoples/unpfii-sessions-2/unpfii-fifteenth-session.html.).

This Indigenous peoples relates to historical continuity for an extended period reaching into the present of one or more of the following factors: -

o Occupation of ancestral lands, or at least of part of them
o Common ancestry with the original occupants of these lands
o Culture in general, or in specific manifestations (such as religion, living under a tribal system, membership of an indigenous community, dress, means of livelihood, lifestyle, etc.)
o Language (whether used as the only language, as mother-tongue, as the habitual means of communication at home or in the family, or as the main, preferred, habitual, general or normal language)
o Residence in certain parts of the country, or in certain regions of the world
o Other relevant factors.
o On an individual basis, an indigenous person is one who belongs to these indigenous populations through self-identification as indigenous (group consciousness) and is recognized and accepted by these populations as one of its members (acceptance by the group).

(https://www.un.org/development/desa/indigenouspeoples/unpfii-sessions-2/unpfii-fifteenth-session.html)

Indigenous people are the descendants of the first settlers or natives, or Aboriginals or Autochthonous. The general definition is that those who are born and brought up in a state or region and who have blood relations with the indigenous people of the state or region are the indigenous people of the state or region. People who are the original inhabitants of a state or region and who have nowhere to go back are the Indigenous People. Iindigenous people have common ancestral origin, ancestral land, common culture . In Indian Constitution, there is no definition of Indigenous People .

On 27 October, 2019, Shri S.C. Jamir.(Senayangba Chubatoshi) five times Chief Minister of Nagaland ((1980, 1982- 1986, 1989- 90 and 1993- 2003) and Governor of Maharashtra, Governor of Gujarat, Governor of Goa and Governor of Odisha. said that only those born and brought up by Naga blood are the indigenous people of Nagaland.

2.Definition of Indigenous People - Supreme Court of India

The Judgement of the Supreme Court of India's on 5 January 2011 while dismissing the Criminal Appellate Jurisdiction arising out of Special Leave Petition (Crl) No. 10367 of 2010) (Kailas & Others. Appellant (s) -versus- State of Maharashtra) unequivocally asserted that "Scheduled Tribes are indigenous peoples of India" (http://www.e-pao.net/epSubPageExtractor.asp? src=news_ section.Inner_Line_Permit_ILP_Demand.Meitei_ST_Scheduled_Tribe_is_the_only_key_to_ILP_in_Manipur_Why_By_Ningombam_Bupenda_Meitei)...

3. Debates in India whether the "Scheduled Tribes" of India are "indigenous peoples" or not

The debate on whether the "Scheduled Tribes" of India are "indigenous peoples" or not took place in India. The Indian Council of Indigenous and Tribal Peoples (ICITP)42, which was formed in 1987 and affiliated to the World Council of Indigenous Peoples - an organization which received consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council, recognised the fact and organized a symposium at New Delhi in April 1992, entitled, "who are the Indigenous Peoples of India?"

In the symposium, the ICIPT admitted the fact that the "Scheduled Tribes" (Adivasis) of India fall under the UN definition of indigenous peoples. In the symposium, it was further elaborated that the Adivasi areas are subject to internal colonialism; Adivasi are treated as the subjects of colonizers even by the Government of India, that millions of Adivasis are displaced, that there is constitutional crisis in the Adivasi areas which has even been acknowledged by the official reports of the Government of India, for example, the 29th Report of the Commission for Scheduled Castes and The Indian Constitution does not define the term " Indigenous People".

Further the Indian Constitution does not define the term "Scheduled Tribes". Instead, Article 366(25) refers to Scheduled Tribes as those communities who are scheduled in accordance with Article 342 of the Constitution. According to Article 342 of the Constitution, the Scheduled Tribes are the tribes or tribal communities or; part of or groups within these tribes and tribal communities that have been declared as such by the President of India through a public notification..." The main question is " what is the identity of the first settlers " or "Natives "

4. UN Debates on Whether, the "Scheduled Tribes" of India are "Indigenous Peoples" or not

Whether, the "Scheduled Tribes" of India are "Indigenous Peoples" or not was debated both in United Nations, Geneva and India. While India led a concrete attack on the UN Working Group on Indigenous Populations in 1984, that was the initiative of an individual representing India in Geneva at that point of time. In the Working Group the representatives of the Government of India have repeatedly stated that the "Scheduled Tribes" of India are not "indigenous peoples" (Erica-Irene a. Daes. Report of the Working Group on its Third Session. UN. Doc. E/CN.4/Sub.2/1984/25 at p.35. Much of the discussion questioning the Indigenous))

Hence , the definition of Indigenous People as per Supreme Court of India can not be taken as final. The Meiteis of Manipur are the indigenous people of Manipur. But they are not the Scheduled Tribes.

5.Articles of Declaration On The Rights of Indigenous People

The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) was adopted by the General Assembly on Thursday, 13 September 2007.
(https://www. un.org/development/desa/indigenouspeoples/wp-content/uploads/sites/19/ 2018/11/ UNDRIP_E_web.pdf )
(http://hrlibrary.umn.edu/edumat/studyguides/indigenous.html )

7. States' duty towards Indigenous Peoples

The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples also declared the States' duties towards the Indigenous People as follows :-

o the duty of States to "obtain their free, prior and informed consent";
o the duty to seek "free agreement" with indigenous peoples;
o the duty to Consult and cooperate" with indigenous peoples;
o the duty to undertake measures "in conjunction" with indigenous peoples; and
o the duty to pay due "respect to the customs" of indigenous peoples.
(https://www.un.org/esa/socdev/unpfii/documents/2012/session-11-e-c19-2012-3.pdf)

8.The Legal Status Of the UN Declaration

The Declaration was adopted through resolution 61/295 of the General Assembly. Unlike treaties or conventions, resolutions do not per se create legally binding obligations on States. However: as a resolution adopted with the approval of an overwhelming majority of Member States, the Declaration represents a commitment on the part of the United Nations and Member States to its provisions, within the framework of the obligations established by the Charter of the United Nations.
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Declaration_on_the_Rights_of_Indigenous_Peoples)

9.Who are the Indigenous People of India

The Indigenous peoples in India comprise of an estimated population of 104 million or 8.6% of the national population. Although there are 705 officially recognized ethnic groups, there are many more ethnic groups that would qualify for the scheduled tribe status, but which are not officially recognized. Therefore, the total number of tribal groups is undoubtedly higher than the official figure.. (http://factsanddetails.com/india /Minorities_Castes_and_Regions_in_India/sub7_4h/entry-4216.html)

The 2001 census indicated that 8.2 percent of the population belonged to Scheduled Tribes. provision which protect the rights of indigenous people (Article 46 of the Directive Principal of State Policy (Part-IV) of the Indian Constitution) provided protection and promotion of the interest of the indigenous people

10. Definition of Indigenous People in the Manipur Context

Indigenous peoples can be identified in particular geographical areas by the presence in varying degrees of the following characteristics :-

10.1. A close attachment to ancestral territories and to the natural resources in these areas;
10.2. Self-identification and identification by others as members of a distinct cultural group;
10.3. An indigenous language often different from the national language;
10.4. Presence of customary social and political institutions; and
10.5. Primarily subsistence-oriented production
( Summary of Resolutions of Workshop on Indigenous and Tribal Peoples Struggle for Right of Self-determination and Self-government in India. UN. Doc. E/CN.4/sub.2/AC. 4/1994 /4/Add. 1 at Para. 3, 8. 10 )

The Unique identity of the Indigenous People of Manipur. are (1) Mongoloid physical features of the Indigenous People of Manipur (2) Indigenous language /dialect (3) Indigenous cultures and traditions (4) Yek Salai of different Clans / Surnames . All the 23 indigenous communities of Manipur has seven Yek Salais . The Manipur kings right from 33 CE, had given unique identity known as Yek Salai for the Indigenous People of Manipur.. These seven Yek Salai are not present in other communities among the Kukis, Marawari, Gujarati, Sikhs, South Indians Nepalis etc. Those who do not have Yek Salai are the Citizens of India/Manipur but they not Indigenous people of Manipur.
