a word that only an (american) Indian can understand. things we do are "indigenous" because they are down-to-earth and natural with our culture. silence, meditating, being one with nature, listening to our surroundings.

basically having the traits that an Indian would have, but being pridefull when doing them. doing natural, native things, either out of curiousity or to represent our Native history. the epitomy of being "down-2-earth" or others may say "down-ass"

similar to the N word, you must be Indian to fully understand the word Indigenous or use it in the proper context.
"the painting of the man laying with the wolf is very Indigenous"

"its a good day to be Indigenous on the reservation"

"our Native Pride shows how Indigenous we are"

"when the chief was crying, he was expressing his indigenous self"

The word indigenous, or indignous (In-DIG-Nuss), is synonymous for cool, awesome, extreme, or rad. If something is indigenous than everyone should like it.
Have you heard this band? They have some indignous new tunes and styles, as if they were extremely rad.

People with indigo skin and dreadlocks, sometimes called avatars. Calling them avatars makes it okay to take all their resources and still say they like you, since people do it in movies, since some people seem to want their true tribal names forgotten or extinct. All groups/shades participate in genocide, and hypocrites come in all shades (even darker shades).
Calling people indigenous makes them sound like a different group/race, instead of part of one human race. You really got one human race, and within the human race are two kinds of people, you got the ones that realize they've always been assholes, and you got the ones that are never gonna get how it's not everyone else who is the asshole, or how they deserve to suffer as much as everybody else does.
