GEOGRAPHICAL REGIONS:

INDIGENOUS PEOPLES
of LATIN AMERICA


A map showing a portion of Latin America

NOTE: this entire section remains largely under construction, except where noted below.  In the meantime, if you check my Search Engine and enter the name of a country or people, you may find many links to them scattered throughout my "Common Themes" pages.


  Table of Contents:

Latin America

Special Latin American Features from MythingLinks

The Lore & History of Chocolate
&
the lore & history of maize

For annotated links covering this Latin American region as a whole,
please see below my "Author's Note."
Meanwhile, here are subsections of Latin America:
 

Central America & the Caribbean

This completed subsection is not yet on-line; several pages that will eventually be part of it do exist, however -- please see below:

Mexico

El Dia de los Muertos, Day of the Dead
Mayan Weaving in the Chiapas Highlands of Mexico
The above page isn't mine -- it's the late Paula Geise's -- but I rescued it as a Mything Links' "adoptee" because it's too valuable to lose; it too will eventually be part of this section:

South america

Amazonian Peoples
Andean Peoples (Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, northern Chile)

Patagonian Peoples [forthcoming]

Peoples from Other South American Regions [forthcoming]
 


 Author's Note:
"Latin America" is everything in the Western Hemisphere, excluding the United States, Canada, and British possessions; the major languages are Spanish, French, and Portuguese.

The University of Texas at Austin maintains a comprehensive, unannotated  listing of Latin American sites organized into various categories.  Below are six of these -- any one of these six could take you days to explore......

http://info.lanic.utexas.edu/la/region/religion/
These are links on Latin America's "Religion and Theology" -- included are links to ancient spirituality as well.
http://info.lanic.utexas.edu/la/region/anthropology/
These links are on Latin America's "Anthropology and Archaeology."
http://info.lanic.utexas.edu/la/region/african/
These links cover the "African Diaspora" in Latin America.
http://info.lanic.utexas.edu/la/region/women/
These are links on Latin America's "Women and Gender."
http://info.lanic.utexas.edu/la/region/art/
These are on Latin America's Arts.
http://www.lib.utexas.edu/Libs/PCL/Map_collection/americas.html
This is the University of Texas' huge collection of maps for Latin America from the Perry-Castañeda Library Map Collection; most were produced by the CIA.  Most are also huge (sizes are noted) and will take a long time to download!  The maps cover regions as well as individual countries.



More to come -- please be patient
