American Indian languages
As a complement to our Gaviao language information, here is our collection of indexed links
about the Gaviao tribe and their society.
The emphasis of these pages is on Gaviaos and other
American Indians as living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Gaviao history is interesting and
important, but the Gaviao 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.
