The core theoretical questions at issue in this paper focus on the concepts of ‘indigeneity’, ‘nativeness’ and ‘autochthony’. If these features of identity and citizenship are increasingly discussed and in some contexts promoted, we can ask the following question for a range of societies: What are the criteria or bases on which this aspect of cultural identity is asserted and /or accepted? That is, how do societies work out who is ‘an indigenous person’ and who is not? Indeed, is this a more or less important question that varies across societies with different politico-cultural histories?
