In terms of recorded world history, North America has the youth of a teenager, only finding itself on maps in relatively recent centuries. The indigenous people, however, have been caring for this land for millennia. History can be traced through architecture and nature, and somewhere between the two, we discover its roots.

The geographical continent includes the North (Canada, United States, Mexico); the isthmus of Central America that connects it to South America; the Caribbean Islands, situated between the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea; as well as Greenland—the autonomous Danish territory—a massive island between the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans.
