WHO THESE MAPS BENEFIT
NATIVE AMERICANS NATIONS:
This map of how our nations looked before contact with outsiders offers our unique perspective as Indigenous Americans. It can be displayed on the walls of our tribal buildings and around our communities to reflect our pride in how we define ourselves, and to give encouragement to tribal members to never forget who we are, or where we belong.
UNIVERSITIES / TEACHERS:
Universities pride themselves on concepts such as higher learning, critical thought and diversity. This detailed map delivers all of that , and more. This map would work great in the halls of our educational system, in areas such as Ethnic Studies Departments, community center buildings, art buildings, and campus centers.
Many museums throughout the country and world have either permanent or temporary exhibitions of Native American culture. This map would add a sense of being taken back in time and enhance any aspect of Native American culture being presented.
Native americans & other individuals with appreciation of Native american history & culture.
The tribal nations map reflects the vast richness of Native America. Although we honor the individual cultures of each Native American nation, modern-day Native Americans recognize the beauty of our cultures shared as a whole as well. This map asserts that our nations spanned the entire United States landscape from sea to sea, that as a collective group we are the original and true heirs to what is now called the "United States." We thrived on our God-given homelands from time immemorial and nothing can testify to that quite like our Tribal Nations map. We appreciate non-Native American's respect and fascination with our history and hope that they, too will appreciate the information that our map has to offer.
