Indigenous Peoples of the World Listed by Language Classification

This directory of the world's indigenous peoples contains photo-ethnographic essays listed by linguistic classification of indigenous languages. Linguistic classification is an active field of research. There is no universal agreement on where a language should be placed. We use the consensus opinion to place indigenous languages into families and then into branches within them.
