With LA's rich diversity at its core, the Mapping Indigenous Los Angeles project from the University of California Los Angeles is creating a series of story maps that bring together a variety of stakeholders to help highlight "multiple layers" of diversity and identity. At the heart of the site are the story maps themselves, which unfold to reveal the complex history of place and the Indigenous peoples who have helped shape and been shaped by them. The story maps vary in length and depth, but all feature a variety of text, photos, podcasts, and other materials that help viewers immerse themselves in the subject matter and deepen their understanding. Accompanying materials include curriculum and educational resources related to telling Indigenous stories approved for both primary and secondary students. The site also features a Further Reading bibliography (accessible under Resources) for those interested in exploring the literature base. Continuing to build and expand the site, Mapping Indigenous LA's research team plans to "include more original inhabitants of Southern California and relocated American Indians, the Latin American Indigenous diaspora, and Pacific Islander communities, who have made Los Angeles their home."
