denizen - noun

Inhabitant or resident; one who frequently inhabits a place, as in the denizens of the local pub.

A tanned skin is something more than respectable, and perhaps olive is a fitter color than white for a man,—a denizen of the woods. “The pale white man!” I do not wonder that the African pitied him.

—Henry David Thoreau “Walking” (1862) The Writings of Henry David Thoreau (1906)
