Mapping Indigenous Worlds Atlas


The Mapping Indigenous Worlds Atlas represents and interprets indigenous cartographic objects and spatial knowledge from around the world.

Although “maps” and “mapping” provide a continuous thematic thread that is well suited to geospatial visualization, the atlas also comprises images, networks, narratives, languages, and sounds to make our discussion of space and place especially wide-ranging and conceptually open.

To visit the Atlas, click on any of the links in the menu to the right.


The Mapping Indigenous Worlds Atlas will grow as our workshops, classes, and partnerships generate new content for it.

If you have an entry you would like to include in the Mapping Indigenous Worlds Atlas, please contact the site administrator, Chris Whitehead.

To learn about the tools available to you as you create your own entry, please consult the Mapping and Visualization Technologies page under the Resources tab.
