Native South Americans

This index has links to resources at Sacred-texts about the religions and spiritual practices of Native South Americans exclusive of the Incas. Please note that while South America is a vast land with a great diversity of environments and cultures, the same cannot be said for the material available in the public domain which is written in English; thus all of the culture areas (except the Andean region) will be lumped together here. At this time, however, only British Guiana (now known as Guyana) is represented.
