map of America

Map of America 1490

The sources for this map

  • American Etnology Walter Krickeberg
  • Pasado indígena Alfredo López Austin
  • Of course fricking Wikipedia

Preliminary clarifications

This map is for new youtube channel i am creating about the history of Latin America, and specifically to give a quick glimpse of what was the continent before the arrival of Europeans

Why I included these cultures and not others?

For two reasons

1. Are the cultures that help me tell the story of Latin America
2. It's easier to group or highlight

Do you think I missed any?
