Native Languages of the Americas: Central and South American Cultures

Hello, and welcome to Native Languages of the Americas! We are a small non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting American Indian languages, particularly through the use of Internet technology. Our website is not beautiful. Probably, it never will be. But this site has inner beauty, for it is, or will be, a compendium of online materials about more than 800 indigenous languages of the Western Hemisphere and the native people that speak them.

Featured Central and South American Indian Cultures

We currently have online language materials for more than 150 Indian tribes of Mexico, Central and South America. You can see our indexes for Central American languages, South American languages, and Mexican languages to learn more about them. We are currently in the process of building a database of links, articles, legends, and photographs of South and Central American Indian cultures the way we have for the North American Indians.
