This paper explores the concept of indigenous people and its use by the tourist industry and the academic community. This is important because the discourse used about the people we come into contact with will have consequences for the beliefs we hold about them and any social action. The question to be addressed is whether the concept of indigenous peoples is any less value laden than other terms like "primitive peoples", "tribes" or "native peoples". The paper concludes that indigenous people are an important resource for the tourist industry. These indigenous cultures must be able to grow and change, if people's livelihood is to be sustained in the peripheral regions.
