Please open this on-line resource: http://www.native-languages.org/states.htm, which shows the pre-contact homelands of the Native Nations in what is now the United States.

Please click on your own state, and take note of which Nations were living in the area you now inhabit. You can also use the links on this resource to visit the current websites of many of the Native Nations’ tribal governments, and learn more about their history and contemporary lives.
