The author reflects (as I think many have) on the lack of any indigenous peoples on the island, and comes up with a "First Nations" variant (a summary of the additional rules are at the bottom of the article). Mostly, this includes asymmetrical rules for a First Nations player that inhabits the middle of the hexes, can move, and has the option to trade with the settlers and/or try to destroy their infrastructure. Sounds not unlike post-Columbian North America! Be interesting to give it a try.

Thanks for sharing this - like many other game groups, we have played Catan to a standstill, but this is just the kind of variation that will enliven the game for us once more. I've just shared this link with the group - I expect we'll play it soon.
