Native Americans lost many, many things after European contact, including what they originally called themselves. This map is an attempt to correct that injustice. Aaron Carapella devoted himself for years, talking to people and researching books and museums, in order to pull together in one image the original names and approximate locations of the incredible diversity of people indigenous to this continent. Well done, Aaron!
I’m not exactly sure why, but this story hits me right in the feels. I have my doubts about the helicopter actually being able to fly, but maybe that’s not the only thing that helicopters are supposed to do. Do yourself a favor and spend 10 minutes with Agustin. You won’t regret it.
