Analysis of national legislations does not allow to formulate a general idea about the concept of "indigenous peoples". There is no generally accepted concept of "indigenous peoples" in international law. We believe that there are two categories of "indigenous population" with different levels of assimilation: 1) separated from civilization (Sami, Indians, Chukchi); 2) partially assimilated (Crimean Tatars, Karaites, Krymchaks, Sorbs). This categorization enables personified look at the nature of the each category’s’ problems. The first category managed to retain its identity (language, traditions, religious practices), but it suffers from insularity and isolation from the achievements of civilization. The second category seeks to restore its identity - namely to reinforce its language, to protect traditions and to return its sanctuary. Both categories are suffering from abuse by their collective rights to land and resources.
