Broadly defined, the word refers to originating in a certain place or region; one born in or connected with a place by birth.

It is commonly used in English-speaking North America (Canada and the US) to refer to people of indigenous/American Indian/Native American/First Nation descent, though its use has to be highly contextualized if making such a reference.

One who thinks that "their" land is raped and "their" women are stolen, and not the other way around. One can see how a native could easily mix these up, I slur a lot when I am drunk too.
Successful white man #1: "Ahoy there, my white brethren, look at these native attempting to placate their innate drunkenness by writing pointless definitions on UD."
Successful white man #2: "Yes, very empowering, but notice how they use "their" when referring to land and women. For a culture that supposedly took no stock in ownership titles of items, they sure are a greedy, bitter bunch."
Successful white man #1: "Very interesting observation Miles. Perchance would you like to accompany me to a local social for an evening fine foods and wine?"
Successful white man #2: "I would love too, Warren. I will most certainly enjoy alcohol that is not from a Listerine bottle."
