Native-Land.ca is a resource to help North Americans learn more about their local history. It's designed to help you see what indigenous territories and languages might have and still do exist around North America, including where you live. Treaties are also mapped.
This is an ongoing project and more territories are added regularly.
Updated wording for autocomplete. Please note the location search may not always work!

Great educational tool!
I travel a lot and love to use this app as a starting point to find information about the First People and Native American groups living in the area I’m visiting.
It is a great educational tool to show how full of different people North America was before settlers imposed their own borders onto it. I’ve had great discussions with my kids about fuzzy borders, language dialects, ancestry, adaptation to difficult environments, and even politics of traditional land claims using this app as a starting point and exploration tool.
My people aren’t even on here and the links included for more information is your basic website which hasn’t been updated in a long time. Very disappointed. I could not find a link to provide input!
Great concept, it would be nice if there was a way to see the shifts in time because territories changed in response to colonial interference. This is a massive undertaking. Thank you for doing this!
