Map maker provides pre-contact look of Canada

"We've always been here "
"Aaron Carapella, who is Cherokee Indian from Oklahoma, became interested in a tribal map of the U.S. when his grandparents introduced him to his culture and the powwow circuit as a youngster. After creating a map of American First Nations, the end result of Carapella's Canadian research is the locations of 212 bands identified in their own Indigenous language. The map is also enhanced with photos of leaders and everyday people."
