Layers: American Nations

Indigenous Peoples reserve the right to define how and where we are represented in popular culture. We know that stereotypes and cultural mockery harms our children.

Some of the Nation names are a little dated. Nations are missing.. But overall, we like this map, for demonstrating that we are all different Cultures....with our own languages, stories, songs, belief systems, and ways of being. The Colonizers have done a great deal of damage in lumping us into one group of "Native Americans" or "Aboriginals". We are many, distinct Sovereign Nations. This map, at least, hints at that reality.
We encourage our Indigenous members to give a shout out to their Nation - especially if they notice that it is not marked on the map.
