Spanish term or phrase: "pueblos originarios"
Hi folks. I'm translating a documentary about Wichi and Chané communities, which are native communities in the North of Argentina. I would really appreciate your advice finding the proper term for "pueblos originarios". Although several options come to my mind, I guess some translations will be more "politically correct" than others.
Would you please help me?
