Lanauage Group Map of American Indians

I was looking for some visual information on American Indians (Native Americans). There really is not very much on the web although there is a nice atlas on Native Americans. I found this on pinterest by way of this website. It shows the language groups of American Indians at the time of contact with Europeans. This is not made up of  political units and may have meant relatively little and very much to the people of the time. This is just a snap shot based on limited information.

Many of the names are familiar as place names. Delaware and Alabama as two examples. As distinct peoples many are gone.


About Matthew Mulbrandon

I really like maps, as I am a geographer, and with the help of my more artistic partner I make cool maps. My focus in work and education has been centred on urban problems particularly housing and transportation. I have built and am working on several agent-based housing models. I am also interested in developing innovative ways to combat urban congestion using buses and electric kick scooters. Also it has led me to more theoretical pursuits such as how we determine if a model or methodology is sound (epistemology). How individuals relate to their social and built environment and their resulting interactions (social theory). Cities and really all our institutions are made of people with all their issues, virtues, and dreams and cannot be discounted when examining policy or predicting behaviours.
