Regular price $66.99

A Chickasaw Historical Atlas brings together a collection of more than 150 maps and images that trace the trajectory of the Chickasaw Nation from contact to the present day. 
The atlas begins with a 1723 deerskin map presented to early American colonists by Chickasaw leader Fani' Minko', providing fascinating insight into the intricate geopolitical concepts of eighteenth-century Chickasaws and other Native American tribes. Throughout the text Nelson’s insightful commentary gives context to the maps, which range from the earliest non-native explorations of the North American continent to modern-day maps produced by the Chickasaw Nation’s GeoSpatial Information Department. A Chickasaw Historical Atlas clearly demonstrates a Chickasaw awareness of place and their sense of relationship with the land throughout their history.
