Settled
A settler is a person who has migrated to an area and established a permanent residence there, often to colonize the area. Settlers are generally from a sedentary culture, as opposed to nomads who share and rotate their settlements with little or no concept of individual land ownership. Settlements are often built on land already claimed or owned by another group. Many times settlers are backed by governments or large countries. They also sometimes leave in search of religious freedom.Contents1 Historical usage1.1 Anthropological usage 1.2 Modern usage 1.3 Implications of Settlement 1.4 Livelihood 1.5 Other usages2 Causes of emigration 3 See also 4 ReferencesHistorical usage[edit]Chilean settlers in Baker River, 1935.One can witness how settlers very often occupied land previously residents to long-established peoples, designated as indigenous (also called "natives", "Aborigines" or, in the Americas, "Indians")
