Self-taught cartographer Aaron Carapella created this amazing map of Native American tribes showing their original geographic locations prior to contact with European colonialist. He spent nearly a decade researching archives, history books, visiting reservations and interviewing tribal leaders for his map projects. So far he has designed maps of North America and Mexico. Carapella is currently working on a map of Alaska. You can visit his website to learn more about the maps and purchase copies. An expandable pdf version is online here.
