Native American Languages Map - Historical Map
The above map is an historical map and sadly illustrates the dying culture in respect of the Native American languages. The Language areas illustrated are those spoken at the earliest time of European contact, as far as can be determined. Since European contact occurred at different times in different areas, there are no accurate historical Native American maps of the entire continent of a single time period.  Although some of the languages are still spoken in North America by Native Americans many languages indicated on the map have become extinct. The tribes who spoke these extinct languages have also become extinct.
