Learning Whose Land We’re On

Shifting our focus from the often fabricated and whitewashed narrative of Thanksgiving, we want to acknowledge that most of us are living on land that did not truly belong to our ancestors.

This interactive map, created by Indigenous-led non-profit Native Led Digital, shows your area’s Indigenous territories and languages.

Silver City, and most of southwestern New Mexico was originally inhabited by the Chiricahua Apache before being forcibly removed by the U.S army. Still, the Chiricahua culture remains alive and vibrant.
