When you are talking about an indigenous group, be careful that what you’re describing is not actually a woodland fairy.
Many indigenous groups do have a desire to protect their land, and are majestic and beautiful peoples so I know this can be tough.
But if you find yourself using the following terms to describe an entire population of contemporary indigenous peoples, you have probably mixed your group up with forest elves:
- natural affinity with nature
- spiritual connections with history
- protective instinct over nature
- creative spirits
- superstitious practices
And so much more.
