The following paper discusses the civilization of the indigenous peoples and the way in which they have been discriminated against in the past.
The following paper explores how the West took away and destroyed the rights of the indigenous people, like those of Philippines and Hawaii . The author makes reference to “Lord Raglan”, using quotes to illustrate his discriminatory attitude towards the indigenous peoples in the past. In addition this paper reveals how the indigenous peoples are active in the international diplomatic arena, seeking respect for their cultures and ways.
“Lord Raglan stated in his own way that the Indians were uncivilized, uncouth savage primitives that had to be made civilized by the Western Standard. He claimed that their worship of nature was wrong and if the Indians were not civilized, it would be a threat to the West as we can never be really civilized until we are all civilized. But how right was he? Since, that time the world has realized that because they did not value nature, nature is being depleted and threatened. So who was right and who was wrong?”
