It Is A Thorny Question,

should indigenous people be given their lands back?

I use the word indigenous to refer to the first people, aboriginal people, native people, or autochthonous people, who are culturally distinct ethnic groups who are native to a place which has been colonised and settled by another ethnic group, as I said the question is thorny and I will leave that to others to debate, but there is a map of the world showing you what indigenous land you might be living on or in, but first, 

Native Land Disclaimer 

This map does not represent or intend to represent official or legal boundaries of any Indigenous nations. To learn about definitive boundaries, contact the nations in question.

Also, this map is not perfect -- it is a work in progress with tons of contributions from the community. Please send us fixes if you find errors.

If you would like to read more about the ideas behind Native Land or where we are going, check out the blog. You can also see the roadmap.

here is the link to the map, the good news is that we in the UK do not seem to appear on it, and hopefully by now we have given back any lands that we colonised.
