This lesson starts with the students having the opportunity to think about what makes a group of people indigenous and then create a definition. The students are introduced to the names of and unique facts and information about some of the indigenous groups in the world, including Maori people and Native Americans. The students then conduct their own research into the customs and history of one indigenous group and compare and contrast this with another group. Geographical tools of maps and visual representations are used. The geographical concepts addressed are place, space, environment, interconnection, scale, sustainability and change.
