English term or phrase:does indigenous has the same meaning like allogenic?
Explanation: Indigenous peoples are the first to inhabit a country. The allogentic peoples are the next waves of immigrants, as long as that immigration is recent and they are fewer in number than the indigenous people.
You might say that France's indigenous population is all the people of Celtic, Frankish, Roman, Russian, Polish, Armenian, and even Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese descent. The allogenic population is that "issu de" the "recent" wave of immigration from Asia and Africa.
Together they are the "opposite" of foreign residents, so they do have a degree of commonality.
