Pipil-Nicarao Migrations (An Interactive Map)

About the Project: This project came into fruition during the second quarter of my first year of graduate school (winter 2018) at UCLA during a seminar on the historiography of colonial Latin America with Dr. Kevin Terraciano. The project outlines the three most popular theories on the migration trajectories of native Nahuatl speakers from central Mexico to Central America, particularly what is now known as modern-day El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Guatemala. I presented this map at the 3rd annual Nahuatl conference at UCLA in May 2018. My presentation was called “Migraciones de los Pipil-Nicarao nahua-hablantes hacia Centroamérica”.
