I know what indigenous minorities are. That's why I made sure my kids would never, ever become an "indigenous minority" because there is no upside to being one. Only the negatives. Like Auschwitz and the gas chambers.
I can't change my place of birth and my "heritage" but I did the next best thing to "assimilate": The only way you would know that I was not born here is from the accent I still have in spite of my efforts to get rid of it. Other than that, I and my family are just like the one next door. Mission accomplished.
You see, my dear kutasek, assimilating is actually effortless - like stepping into a pool of water and getting wet. Preserving your native lifestyle requires effort and is a hostile act that translates into:I don't like you and your customs so I am going to keep mine and make sure my kids do the same.
The next step: demanding special "rights" and protections for indigenous minorities. See the UK, Muslims, and the real Brits. Poor sobs...
How this works is best seen at the Indian reservations here - hellholes where everybody is on welfare, drunk, and unemployed but oh so proud... Or Muslim ghettos in Western Europe...
BTW, before you go there make sure you hire armed guards.
