Indigenous Nations of Central America Map (Native and Common Names)



This map is in honor of all of the Indigenous Nations of Central America. It seeks to encourage people - Native and non-Native- to remember that modern-day Central America was once a vast land of autonomous Native peoples, who called various regions of Central America by many different names according to their languages and geography. The hope is that it instills pride in the descendants of these Peoples, brings an awareness of Indigenous history and remembers the Nations that fought and continue to fight valiantly to preserve their way of life.
