Native American & Indigenous Mapping

This page highlights cartography produced by and for Native American or Indigenous peoples.  There may be more materials available, whether here in the Northwestern University Libraries' collection or in other libraries, but this is the beginning of an effort to raise awareness and use of these materials.  In addition to these materials the collections include many maps and atlases about Native American and Indigenous peoples that are not listed here representing territories, reservations, histories, cultures, languages, and more that have been published by primarily non-Native scholarly and commercial publishers. 

To view these maps, please email govinfo@northwestern.edu and make an appointment.  The map cases are locked and located in an unstaffed area of the University Library (Lower Level, Room B190).
