Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



To seek a new horizon of studying the indigenous way of cartographic representation in the native societies of the American Indians, integrated knowledge on the so-called Indian maps, of cartography and geography, as well as ethnohistory and anthropology, are needed. By this way we may understand these native " dogmas " and " weltbild or cosmogony " in their own spatial recognition and its representation with native materials or their own means of drawing. - (SGA)
