Abstract

This article examines the relevance and appropriateness of identifying groups of peoples as indigenous in the context of Ethiopia. By drawing on the criteria of indigenous peoples formulated at the international and regional (African) levels, it contends that few groups, including the Anywaa, the Gumuz and the Afar, qualify as indigenous. Further, the article notes that recognising these groups as indigenous has far-reaching implications on their right to maintain access and ties to and control over their ancestral land.
