Indian Facts and Fallacies

While I was adding Indian Villages North of Mexico to our site, I discovered many things I didn’t know, (not that I know everything Indian!!) but I thought some of these were very interesting and would share them with our readers.  Some you may agree with while others are quite questionable.

The Handbook of American Indians North of Mexico was compiled by some of the best and well known Indian researchers of that time.  Many of which wrote only about specific tribes.  The work began in 1873 and was submitted to the Bureau of Ethnology for publication in 1905.  There are approximately 2,500 tribes listed in the book, most of which you will find under Indian Tribes of the United States on our pages.

Now is my turn to say to our readers Did you Know?
