About the maps

The maps displayed on this website are not intended to portray exact boundary lines. During the tumultuous times of the early 17th Century, tribal alliances were in a constant state of change. Additionally, it wasn't uncommon for sub-sachems to claim allegiance to more than one sachem at any given time.

The areas we highlight on each map are approximate according to our best knowledge. We estimated each area based on land deeds, primary and secondary sources, and traditional histories. Some historians may agree with our maps, some may not.
