Indigo children, according to a pseudoscientific New Age concept, are children who are believed to possess special, unusual, and sometimes supernatural traits or abilities. Such children are believed to be a next stage in human evolution; to have paranormal abilities like telepathy; and/or to be more empathic, independent, and creative than its peers.


Coined in the 1970s by Nancy Ann Tappe, a synesthete who claimed to perceive most children under 10 with an indigo aura.
