A bit of a grab-bag of sometimes loosely related resources, but there's some great stuff here. For example: a short review of Mathematics Used by American Indians North of Mexico, Non-Instrument Weather Forecasting, a rather odd paper (pdf) on the Basque Septuagesimal System and the Thread and Pearl Analog Calculator.

Fun stuff, ethnomathematics. I enjoyed reading Mathematics Elsewhere by Marcia Ascher. The chapter on wave maps was great.
