  1. Greetings Decolonial Atlas Cartographers,

    I will be hosting an event on the importance of restoring Native toponyms and I would like to talk with someone/people from your group about the Decolonial Atlas project. Could you forward to me a phone number? Is there a member of your group in the Twin Cities?

    I am a professor at St. Thomas, the director of a foundation on Nations Without Statehood, and a community activist. I have hosted events centered on a range of issues of the Common Good. For example, in April I hosted a teacher from the Bdote Learning Center to talk about the importance of Native language revitalization. In February, I will be hosting a member of the Fond du Lac Band to talk about the current elk reintroduction program on Native lands.

    Thank you,

  2. Apparently “colonizing” doesn’t apply when it’s you, raiding an artists website and taking their images, ones literally stamped with copyright protection language, and using them without permission or acknowledgement.


  3. Please send info on how I can purchase the maps for the average output of wheat and rice. I am writing a book about wheat and rice, and think these two would be very helpful.


  4. Great job! But a bit anglo-centric maybe? As for Europe, mostly Irish entries and 1 Basque. You are missing the whole 1000 year old Catalan Question! Would be amazing to find stuff here 😉


  5. Amos Bad Heart Bull was perhaps the best architect who ever lived, though he may never have built beyond his own shelter, his understanding of space greatly outweighed those of our contemporaries or their beloved “influences.” Miigwech for beginning this project, it is quite important!


  6. PROJECT IDEA: Would love to have this map produced for grade 10 history class
    For Canada:
    show the tiny percentage of the entire country owned by FN (6% I think??) VS Non… with a quote -caption from The Inconvenient Indian: What do white people want? land.

    • Please send info on how I can purchase these maps. I have a grandson who loves map-making. I research indigenous matricultures in the land now called Canada and use cartography to expose subjugated knowledge of matricultures. Currently in doctoral studies.
