Whoa! This looks like a world in which the Native persons have not been killed or run off... yet?Can't wait to read this!!
that map is quite something.united nations of america? you could be onto something there.
I like the "here there be monsters" touch.
@ Tanita: Thanks! I hope a publisher buys it! :-)@ unwashedflyer: I had a lot of fun imagining a United States where the native tribes became the dominant civilizations, those on the east coast blending with a few European settlements. :-)@ Budd: I had to get "Here There Be Monsters" in there--and the kicker is, there really ARE monsters there...
This is an interesting site. I plan to explore it a bit more. I was wondering if you meant to use certain names that can be viewed as, well, non-native. Like the New York Iroqouis are called the Haudenosaunee, and Dakota/Lakota usually view Sioux as an insult.
Hi Anonymous -Thanks for stopping by. I'm going to continue to use Iroquois, as I'm using the Confederacy, mostly. But your information about the Sioux/Dakota is something I wasn't aware of. I'll follow up on that. If it's as you say, I'll be sure to use Dakota, not Sioux. Thank you!
