It is Geschiere who has suggested the term 'autochthony' for this phenomenon (from the Greek--being of the soil), a word which is already in use in the Netherlands and in the Francophone world to make the crucial difference between the 'autochthones
' who belong and the 'allochthones' who do not.
Neither nitrite concentrations used in the manufacture of fresh sausages, nor storage temperatures effectively controlled the development of autochthone
Oppong (1971) describes the Dagbon state as the amalgam of autochthones
and an immigrant ruling class.
In this contribution, we focus on the enumeration, classification, and subsequent graphic visualization of subpopulations considered as "other." In particular, we look at the ways immigrant populations in Germany and the Netherlands are graphically visualized as residing at a certain distance from what is--in the statistical work we take as object of our analysis--either called "society," the "natives," or "autochthones
." As an example of the type of statistical visualizations we focus on, consider Figure 1.
This paper presents a case study of development negotiations in a small village in the southernmost Tombali region of Guinea-Bissau, ethnically divided between the Nalu autochthones
and Balanta immigrants.

The status of the West African fish Gobius nigricinctus with reference to New World autochthones
and an Old World colour-analogue.
Among the species reported 19 (59 %) are autochthones
and 13 (41 %) are introduced.
Represented as the 'first inhabitants of the torrid zone', 'more brutish and fierce' than their conquerors, these supposed black autochthones
remained 'sole masters of their ancient possessions' only in New Holland and 'other unknown southern lands' (1756, I:16, 77-80; II:375-80).
After having stripped the autochthones
of their land, nothing more remained but to strip them of their bodies.
