Tribal Nations Map of North America


Aaron Carapella, a self-taught mapmaker in Warner, Okla., has designed maps of Canada, the continental U.S. and Mexico showing the original locations and names of Native American tribes before their first contact with Europeans. (Click images to enlarge)

For over a decade, Carapella consulted history books and library archives, called up tribal members and visited reservations as part of research for his map project, which began as pencil-marked poster boards on his bedroom wall. Currently he is working on a tribal nations map of Alaska.
