The USA has American Indians. Canada has First Nations. Australia has its aboriginal people. Japan has the Ainu people. But what about other nations? What are their natives like? In which countries are they in the minority?

latin america still maintains a significant number of natives, it shows in their culture whenever i visit. socioeconomically they do not seem to be faring as well as the non natives, on the flip side their languages are better represented down there.

guaraní is spoken by more than 90% of paraguay and, some 52% are monolingual in guaraní, particularly in rural areas. i like knowing that native languages haven't totally been stamped out.

basque is a non IE language native to europe.

"American Indians" are both a bigger population, and a bigger proportion of the population of Latin America than in the USA.

There are still uncontacted tribes in the Amazon. Five million people along the spine of the Andes in Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador, still speak Quechua (the language of the Incan Empire). Mayans are still the main population of the Yucatan. Millions of peasants near Mexico City still speak Nauatl (sp?)(the language of the Aztecs and Toltecs.

Tribal peoples inhabited Siberia prior the expansion of the Czarist Empire east into northern Asia. And are still the only inhabitants of vast expanses of Siberia.

Australian aborigines, of course, are the indigenous people of Australia.

Maoris are the indigenous people of New Zealand.

Sami (previously called Lapps) are the indigenous people of northern Scandinavia.

Borneo still has many indigenous people of varying ethnic groups.

Most of the nations of Africa still have indigenous people of varying ethnic groups.

That's all I could think of now.

It might be argued that Europeans bearing the robust characteristics of Borreby, Faelid, and Bruen types are the descendants of the Ice Age hunter/gatherers such as Cro Magnons, and others, and so might be described as "indigenous" Europeans. Then again, almost all European populations have been a blend of Ice Age hunters, Neolithic Middle Eastern Farmers, and Neolithic/Bronze Age/ Iron Age Steppe herdsmen/warriors for thousands of years.

For subnational areas, there are also Native Hawaiians (Kānaka Maoli) and the Rapa Nui of Easter Island (part of Chile).

Taiwan also has 16 indigneous (non-Han) peoples that are presently recognised by the Taiwanese government.

Poland had the Prussians. Poland tried again and again to destroy these Baltic tribes but obviously the Catholic god wasn't on their side for they were always driven back, so they called on the Teutonic Knights who were most successful.
Probably find even the remains of assimilated Old Prussian blood has been eradicated when the Polish finally got given Prussia by the international community after the world wars.
The greatest amount of calls for help to the League of Nations came from the Prussians who were being ethnically cleansed by the Polish as soon as they were given Prussia following the Treaty of Versailles.

That was because the League of Nations actually represented the winners in WWI, and so were never going to help any German speaking people.
It's funny how Poland had tried to rid themselves of their Prussian population, and yet Slavic nationalists in Poland and elsewhere had invented the myth that the Medieval Germans under the Teutonic Knights had exterminated the Baltic Prussians. Unfortunately, German nationalists, stressing the idiocy of racial purity, were more than happy to endorse this myth, while denying that the Prussians of later times were a blend of German newcomers, and Baltic Prussians.

Indigenous people are the majority of Bolivia's population and a good percentage of Peru's. Bolivia's president, Evo Morales, is Aymara. Peru's former president, Ollanta Humala (in office 2011-2015) is also indigenous.

Inuits also live in Greenland and extreme eastern Russia, particularly the Chukchi Peninsula.

The Polynesians in the Pacific Islands like Hawaii, The Philippines, and Samoa?

My real father was half Hawaiian and half Filipino.

Costa Rica has 7 groups of indigenous peoples. I believe the native language of two of these groups are extinct. I visited a village of Bribri where they are trying to make a go of it raising cocoa and tourism instead of working on the banana plantations where the men die early due to pesticides. The Bribri language is spoken by my generation, but the younger ones speak Spanish, due to schooling.

My woven backpack was handmade by the Boruca, another indigenous group in Costa Rica, who have become fairly successful due to their colorful masks and festivals.

Another group's traditional lands span the border of CR and Panama and there are some special dispensations because they migrate to and from countries which mean nothing to them.

Spanish speaking latinos living in america dont care about them at all. Spanish speaking latinos dont care about spanish speaking latinos living in latin america or the native americans living in america or the indigenous latin americans living in latin america. You'd wish hillary or mccain cares..
