The Bureau of Indian Affairs 2016 map of Indian Lands in the United States. Click the above image for the PDF of the map, to more closely examine the data.


The clip above, to contrast with the BIA map in resource #4, was generated by University of Georgia historian Claudio Saunt to accompany his new book West of the Revolution: An Uncommon History of 1776.
It offers a time-lapse vision of the transfer of Indian land in the U.S. between 1776 and 1887. As blue “Indian homelands” disappear, small red areas appear, indicating the establishment of reservations.  
The project’s source data is a set of maps produced in 1899 by the Bureau of American Ethnology. The B.A.E. was a research unit of the Smithsonian that published and collected anthropological, archaeological, and linguistic research on the culture of North American Indians, as the nineteenth century drew to a close.
