QuoteIn retrospect, looking at the video in 2019, I would change the title. While the Meskwaki are the last federally recognized tribe based in Iowa, they are certainly not the only ones with land claims and deep heritage in this state (especially the Ioway people, for whom the state was named).

Quote from: Luther Martini on October 10, 2022, 02:10:21 PMWith today being Indigenous Peoples' Day, NPR posted on their website an article titled "Which Indigenous lands are you on? This map will show you".The article describes and links to a site showing the current status of a project to map indigenous lands, not only on the North American continent, but also in many other places around the world. If you are in a hurry, and don't want to read the NPR article to find the link to the map, here it is:https://native-land.ca/

I know Austin was famous for it's Native peace tree grove (oaks?) where treaties were made, so that makes sense that such a diplomatically important place would be located here.
Quote from: Cassia on October 10, 2022, 06:31:43 PMI knew that many geographical names came from the Natives, but wow driving around in the US mentioning towns, lakes and rivers it is like you are speaking in their tongue. Most words are mispronounced, I am sure.
