About this title


The 109 maps in this comprehensive atlas provide a much-needed visual and spatial dimension to narrative accounts of U.S. Indian policy. Francis Paul Prucha presents in cartographic form essential historical and current date on American Indians and Alaska Natives. Researchers, teachers and students, public officials, amateur historians, and all others who are interested in American Indian people will find the Atlas of American Indian Affairs a valuable compendium of information otherwise scattered and inaccessible.

The maps show Indian culture areas and historical tribal locations; U.S. Census population figures by counties; Indian land cessions; past and present reservations; governmental entities that have dealt with Indians (trading houses, Indian agencies, schools, and hospitals) at various times; removals to and Indian populations of Oklahoma (Indian Territory); and Alaska Native villages, corporations, and populations.

In addition, a series of maps illustrates the westward-moving Indian frontier, drawing together a variety of information on army posts, military engagements, reservations, and land cessions from the years of the early Republic to the late nineteenth century. Of particular interest to military historians is a group of maps that locate army installations—forts, camps, cantonments, and barracks—and show the size of their garrisons at selected dates from 1789 to 1895. Finally, a portfolio of maps by Rafael D. Palacios depicts sites of major Indian uprisings and military engagements in the West from the 1862 Sioux uprising to the Wounded Knee tragedy in 1890.

The extensive notes, which direct readers to sources of information and furnish statistical data, provide an invaluable guide to further research. The book includes a comprehensive index.
