Internship in english in Spatial cognition and navigation

Colons in the Americas replaced indigenous names (typically descriptive, orientation supporting) with colonial names (blind to landscape features). We want to assess the cognitive import of the replacement, against the historical background. As a start Inuit Places, work by Claudio Aporta on Inuit trails.
