There are over fifty recognized groups of indigenous peoples in Nepal, who comprise about 40 per cent of the total population.

Nepal's ratification of the ILO Convention No. 169 on Indigenous and Tribal Peoples is a step forward towards the promotion and protection of rights for the Bote and other indigenous peoples.
