What's new on our site today!
As a complement to our Akawaio language information, here is our
collection of indexed links about the Akawaio tribe and their society.
The emphasis of these pages is on Akawaios and other
American Indians as living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Akawaio history is interesting and
important, but the Akawaio Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional
folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies
of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
