Abstract: Abstract One of the weaknesses of sustainable livelihood framework is that like other poverty model, this framework has never extended its dimensions considering current economic–social–political–environmental contexts. This study offers two statistically significant supplementary dimensions of livelihood assets, namely ‘information’ and ‘freedom,’ in addition to the five usual dimensions of the framework. This study also offers a statistically reliable multidimensional model with 39 livelihood assets and six well-being outcomes as perceived by the indigenous people of Bangladesh. The methodology of the study is based on 1556 primary data collected from the stated community and analyzed through structural equation modeling. This paper also explored the differences in livelihood priorities and well-being achievements between indigenous men and women.
