Lifehacker: This Web App Maps Out North America’s Indigenous History

Not sure how new, but new-to-me, from Lifehacker: This Web App Maps Out North America’s Indigenous History. “Ask any person to name a Native American tribe and you’ll probably come up with the same handful of names (or a blank stare). But visualization tool Native Land can help you identify hundreds of tribes, even ones in your current town. It’s a colorful and informative visualization and gateway to a history of which you were probably unaware.” Note the comments: a self-reported Lumbee, for example, does not feel this accurately represents Lumbee territory.
