Well yes and no. It is entirely regional but it also relates to the level of industrialization and globalization while not directly referring to it, the factors do apply.

When you are applying it to religion, you are correct, indigenous isn't referring to the religion but more the tribes relation to the religion. Basically calling a specific religion localized in either a small or large region and comparing it's spread to outside groups.

Essentially I'm not saying you are wrong, you are right on a literal level, but in context it still works correctly.

You're right but for the wrong reasons.

Indigenous just means native like the guy said. The word in and of itself has no bearing than geographic origination.

However, in common usage we associated it with "uncivilized" tribal peoples even though it simply means native.

Language evolves all the time, so while it would be the incorrect word in a formal essay or something, in casual conversation and such its perfectly fine.

Did I just witness a civil exchange of opinions on the internet???!

On the serious note, msfattyroll is correct, albeit the literal meaning is just "native", when used commonly it does refer to low level of industrialization as well.

Indigenous is referring to the fact they aren't industrialized in any way, supporting the fact that they have very little connection with the outside world. Take for instance the irish tribes you just mentioned, before they became more social with outlying groups, they were primarily pagans.

You're referring to the more colloquial assumptions made when we hear the word indigenous (just like whoever made that particular frame), but that isn't what indigenous means. I apologize for choosing a poor analogy.

I'm indigenous to the US. The pope is indigenous to Germany. The queen of England is indigenous to the British isles. Indigenous has nothing to do with religion, industrialization, or globalization.

It is grammatically correct, but it doesn't offer any relevant information. Indigenous essentially means native. Irish 'tribes' are indigenous to Ireland, and are mostly christian. Indigenous as an adjective has no bearing on an religious views.
