My definition of indigeniety extends beyond just physical land and location to a set of social values which emphasise connections between animals and features in the landscape which have significance in resources and survival and with deeper empathic relationships between members called kinship. Their history is concerned with ancestors and their deeds which often form the basis to their mores and lore which told in stories to children instills within them values, codes of behavior such as respect for people, animals and rivers, which all lumped together forms a type of unwritten constitution for a tribe or clan.
