Pre-Contact Tribal Maps

Here you will find the most comprehensive U.S. map of pre-contact to date. These maps use Tribal Nation’s original indigenous names for themselves, and show where Tribes were just before contact. Your contribution supports getting these maps in Virginia public, private and home schools.

This map is the first to document the true names and original pre-contact locations of every documented Native American Nation in what is now the contiguous United States of America. At Sanctuary on the Trail™ Native American Church of Virginia we seek to honor all tribes, by including the larger, well-known ones as well as many that did not survive the effects of European genocide and disease. Most of the tribal names are the correct names used to call themselves in their own languages. The only exception are for those tribes whose languages were never documented. It is a visual reminder of who called this land home for tens of thousands of years before any European set foot, creating a sense of pride for modern-day Native Americans as well as educating the non-Native public. The intent of Sanctuary on the Trail™ Native American Church of Virginia is making these maps available is to instill pride in Native peoples and to be used as a teaching tool to all schools, starting with Virginia (public, private and home schools).
