Seri Culture and History

As a complement to our Seri language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Seri tribe and their society. Please note that Seris and other American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Seri history is interesting and important, but the Seri 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.
