Definitely worth an intensive read! The glaring differences between translating a first nation name for Greenland and white-washing North/South America and Australia threw me down a rabbit-hole though.

While I wasn't able to find comprehensive graphics including original names (autonyms) and their translations, I think Native Land provides the best resource for further reading (notably, it does not yet have history for Africa).

For North America specifically, Wikipedia had an extensive compilation on Traditional Territories of the Indigenous Peoples.

Last "fun" fact, respectful names for original/native/indigenous populations are an evolving consensus, and I thought "first nations" was the most appropriate.
