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