I recently read a book called Sapiens, by Yuval Noah Harari. In it, one concept he discussed is how borders of countries are just artificial constructs. They don’t exist unless enough people are convinced that really they do exist. Looking at an old map of North America, I kept thinking of all the indigenous peoples inhabiting this space long before European colonization set in. From the Inuits, to the Cree, to the Hopi (and on and on), this is a little tribute to the native tribes of this land.
