Amazing Thank you mike, Native americans always interests me but never had the chance to read up on them.
A very impressive listing of the native peoples. And think how much longer the list would be if ALL the peoples of the Americas were included.
And think how all the peoples were decimated by European diseases, only a small portion of their original numbers remained.
One note of correction. The Cheyenne were divided into two groups, the Cheyenne proper, and the Suhtai. Together forming those now known collectively as simply Cheyenne. The terms Northern and Southern, being only geographical distinctions.
Although the name Aztec is what is commonly used, the following is more accurate.
According to their legends, they came from a land called Aztlan, the source of their name. The Aztecs were not a single people but several groups, including the Colhua-Mexica, the Mexica, and the Tenocha.
Their name, Mexica ( pron. Meh-she-ca ) became the name of the country after the Spanish conquest ie. Mexico.
An interesting aside.
If the Spanish had used the name of the land, using the Nahuatl word for it,,,,that name would be Anahuac.
Really interesting stuff up here...thanx
Amazing! Thank you!
Please would you like to share about their relation hip with their sacred places? I have tried to find a group about that here, but the concern was always to protect the sacred places, not to discuss their meaning or the pratices related to these places. You may like to share in the discussion I have provided for that, please, SacredPlaces. Thank you! Also, I think the native Maerican and the Himalayan have many common point in their approach to natural sacred geography, due to ancient common ehtnic and cultural roots. Please kindly come to share your amazing knowledge.
