This article briefly reviews the history of the concepts of "indigenous" peoples and "tribal peoples" and proceeds to investigate certain issues of protection of indigenous and tribal peoples in armed conflicts in the context of international law and practice of judicial and extra-judicial human rights protection mechanisms. Based on the analysis of specific rules of international humanitarian law, this article concludes that they are not capable, in general, of providing meaningful special protection for indigenous and tribal peoples as especially vulnerable groups in armed conflicts. In view of the above, possibility of protection of indigenous and tribal peoples at the time of armed conflict is considered taking into account the practice of international judicial and non-judicial mechanisms for the protection of human rights.
