OK folks, so... at the request of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), I'm attempting to write a song about indigenous people (Worldwide, not just Australian). However, not feeling it appropriate to apply the label "indigenous" myself, I'm wondering how best to communicate the idea (through song) that, in order to work towards a sustainable equilibrium as a species on this planet, we need to somehow reach a point where we ALL, in some way at least, are able to FEEL indigenous and start behaving as such. If this makes sense, or means anything to you, I'd love to hear your thoughts on what you think it could mean for everyone to become "indigenous". ...
