Don't worry. If they are in North American or South American languages, they're also "Indian".

I know. That's why I said I had a bunch more to go. :P

Mopan (Maya) is a Mayan language, specifically a Yucatecan language, meaning it's closely related to Yucatec and Lacandon (and another language called Itza'). It's mainly spoken in Belize and to a lesser extent in Guatemala. This is some song that has text in Mopan, Spanish, and English sung by a bunch of kids in Virginia. :P It's the only one I know of that has any Mopan in it:

Garifuna is a language in the Northern branch of the Arawakan family and an offshoot of the misleadingly named Island Carib (Carib is the name of a completely unrelated language, but the Island Carib people were mistakenly presumed to be Carib). Its speakers are of mixed West African, Central African, Island Carib, and Arawak descent. They originally lived on the island of Saint Vincent in the Caribbean but were deported to the eastern coast of what is now Honduras. The Garifuna mostly live in Honduras with smaller populations in Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and the US. Although their language is Arawakan, it has lots of loanwords from Carib languages and various European languages. This is a Garifuna song from Belize called "Garifuna Nuguya":

Ngäbere a.k.a. Guaymí, Movere, Chiriquí, and Valiente, is a language in the Chibchan family spoken in Costa Rica and (especially) Panama. This is a very short song by school students in Ngäbere from Chichica, located on the Ngäbe-Buglé indigenous reservation (or comarca) in Panama:

Bribri is a tonal Chibchan language spoken in Costa Rica. It's apparently pretty closely related to Teribe/Naso. It has more speakers (11,000) than most Chibchan languages (though Ngäbere has more). This is a song in Bribri by a (village?) elder. At the end, a younger Bribri guy explains in Spanish that it's a song of happiness:

Cabécar is another Chibchan language spoken in Costa Rica that may be closely related to Bribri and Teribe/Naso. 80% of its speakers are monolingual, making it the only indigenous language in Costa Rica to have monolingual speakers at least as of 2007. This is a Christian evangelical song in Cabécar:

I've been trying to find something in Arabic that is possible to listen till the end and this one is a good example for my taste. The song has "rap" in the middle and guitar solo is beautiful :ohwell:

In Nicaragua, there's a small family of indigenous languages called the Misumalpan languages (a.k.a. Misumalpa or Misuluan). The one with the most speakers is Miskito, but there is also Sumo, and one variety of Sumo is called Mayangna. There is another called Ulwa, which is distinctive enough from Mayangna that some argue it's a different language. This is a song for mothers in Mayangna by Melchor Pérez:

West Embera (a.k.a. Citará, Northwest Embera, and Northern Embera) is a language from the Chocoan family spoken in southern Panama and northern Colombia. The Chocoan languages in general are spoken primarily along the western coast of Colombia but also to a lesser extent in southern Panama. This is a clip from the village of Embera Drua in Panama of singing, apparently in West Embera, and dancing:
